Prior to the hurricanes in the second half of 2005, the 2005 Louisiana Survey revealed a slight uptick in residents who expressed the opinion that the state was heading in the right direction. In addition to this finding, the Survey also examined:

  • a rise in economic confidence among residents
  • grades for various areas of state government services
  • property taxes, homestead exemption, and the Stelly Plan
  • perceptions of waste in state government
  • economic development and Louisiana's image
  • healthcare and economic development incentives
  • perceptions of corruption
