mistake ?

Kingdom of Spain refers to Peace of Paris (1783) ; I think it rather should be Peace of Paris (1763). -- Preceding unsigned comment added by Circenses (talk o contribs) 21:42, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Elevation - Wikipedia as an archive

Sometimes I like to cross-check facts by looking through old revisions. I went back to 2005 and found this:

"New Orleans is a unique city because some areas of the city range from 1 to 20 feet (0.3 to 6 m) below sea level, and rain-water must be pumped out as fast as it falls to prevent flooding. In addition to the urban areas of the city, New Orleans includes undeveloped wetland, especially in the east. The city is very flood-prone. If it rains more than 1 inch (25 mm) there is usually some form of area flooding, which due to the climate can be a fairly regular occurence. Because of this, nearly all of New Orleans' cemeteries use above ground crypts rather than underground burial."

Now the article states that the range is from -2 meters (six feet) to positive 20 feet (6 meters). B137 (talk) 01:44, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Change terminology - "illegal immigrants" to "undocumented immigrants"

Dear Wikipedia,

I am writing to request a change to the terminology "illegal immigrants" utilized in the demographic section of the wiki entry on New Orleans. Please substitute with "undocumented immigrants" as this has been adopted as the more accurate term. Journalistic sources such as AP adopted this change in 2013, and I hope wikipedia will also drop the use of a questionable term. Thank you.23:00, 17 December 2016 (UTC)Wikimohan102 (talk)

Is Baton Rouge the largest municipality in Louisiana?

I just did some calculations. New Orleans had 484,674 people compared to Baton Rouge's 387,784 people as of 2000. However, it appears New Orleans lost -29.1% of it's population, and Baton Rouge only lost -0.9%. The 2010 Census totals of 343,829 for New Orleans and 384,452 for Baton Rouge would mean Baton Rouge is the largest municipality?

If you are wondering where I got the Baton Rouge Census totals, the municipality actually seems to govern the rural parts of East Baton Rouge Parish, which I assumed includes everything but Baker, Central, Zachary (the only incorporated places in East Baton Rouge Parish). Thus subtracting those populations from the Parish population gives the figures I quoted above. I'm wondering if any experts out there will tell me where I went wrong. Thanks!

References nos. 64 and 65 are cited to support the statement that the average sea level in the city of New Orleans is between 1 and 2 feet below sea level. Ref 64 is a peer-review report; ref 65 is a newspaper article the cites ref 64. Careful reading of both references reveals that neither supports the statement re average sea level. The statement should be deleted. 2602:306:BDCA:1B30:205B:5971:FBDB:3F62 (talk) 12:20, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
