Special Issue of Population and Environment: Puerto Rico’s Population before and after Hurricane Maria

Submission deadline: 01 February 2019

Guest Editor: Fernando I. Rivera, Director, Puerto Rico Research Hub at the University of Central Florida

Deadline: 1 February 2019

On September 20, 2017 Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria, which severely damaged the power, water, and transportation infrastructure of the island and left residents struggling to meet their basic needs. This disaster occurred in the context of a decade-long financial crisis, which severely hampers disaster recovery efforts. The scholarly response to the controversy over the death toll from Hurricane Maria has exposed the scarcity of population data and the challenges involved in collecting new data or analyzing existing administrative data or vital records. Many questions remain unanswered as a result. The goal of this special issue is to assemble demographic knowledge about Puerto Rico’s population before and after Hurricane Maria that may prove useful as scholars, policy-makers, and others as they design plans to recover from Hurricane Maria and the financial crisis.

Submission Information: Refer to the call for papers posted on the journal website:

Submit questions prior to submission to Fernando Rivera (Fernando.Rivera@, Guest Editor of this Special Issue, or Elizabeth Fussell (Elizabeth_Fussell@, Editor-in-Chief.

Submitted manuscripts should be formatted in accordance with Population and Environment guidelines available in the journal or at Manuscripts should be uploaded to the journal’s website.
