Yoon Lee, George Haynes, Linda Manikowske - Using data from the 2013 Small Business Survival and Demise after a Natural Disaster (SBSD) project, the primary purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between gender and small firm survival and success after Hurricane Katrina. This study also explored the role of family adjustment strategies in small firm success across gender. This study further investigated business and owner characteristics that could influence firm survival and success. Given the vulnerability of small businesses following natural disasters, it is important to understand how owners’ characteristics and strategies did increase or decrease the likelihood of survival and success among small business impacted by Hurricane Katrina.
