(CNN)For its story and graphics showing where Puerto Ricans may have migrated after Hurricane Maria, CNN analyzed two national data sets obtained under the Freedom of Information Act:
- Application data from the Federal Emergency Management System's Individuals and Households Program, which provides housing and financial assistance to eligible disaster victims, and
- Change-of-address orders placed with the US Postal Service.
