Highlights and annotationsABC have been added by me. The annotations makes it easier to match the percentages with their corresponding data cells.
Why does this report deserved an audience? This is why:
The sample size was
683 “New Jersey residents who were displaced by Superstorm Sandy for at least one month”; 90% of respondents’ counties were Monmouth (51%) and Ocean (39%). More information on methodology and panel demographics is available in the original report.
If you want to calculate the confidence interval for the percentages, you can do so here.

By contrast, a statewide poll conducted by Monmouth University in September found that the vast majority of all New Jersey residents, 76%, said their families have fully recovered from the storm.”
|Satisfaction||Total||Still displaced||Back in home||<$50k||$50–74k||$75–99k||$100–149k||>$150k|
Residents who continue to be displaced (76%)C are much more negative about these efforts than those who are now back in their homes (47%)D.
By contrast, fully 76% of all New Jerseyans said they were satisfied with the state's recovery efforts according to a September Monmouth University Poll [sic].”
The Helped and The Forgotten

‘The Sandy recovery effort is certainly a tale of two states. New Jerseyans who were displaced by the storm, even if they are now back in their homes, are significantly more negative than other Garden State residents about the pace and focus of recovery,’ said Patrick Murray, director for the Monmouth University Polling Institute, which is conducting the ongoing study under a grant from the New Jersey Recovery Fund.”

I have made more readabale—but more important exportable—version of some of the tables in the survey are available here. I haven’t double-checked the values, so make sure to do so before using the tables yourself. You are free to use my redesign of the spreadsheets from Google Docs as you see fit; you’ll have to ask the Monmouth University Polling Institute about what you can do with their data, though.
