The 2011 Point-in-Time Estimates of Homelessness: Supplement to the Annual Homeless Assessment Report
Source: U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
From the press release:
On a single night last January, 636,017 people were homeless in the United States, a 2.1 percent decline from the year before. That’s the key finding of a new count on homelessness announced today by U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan. ...
HUD’s annual "point in time" estimate of the number of homeless persons and families is based on data reported by more than 3,000 cities and counties. While number of homeless persons vary locally, these communities are reporting modest declines in homelessness in every category or subpopulation including individuals, families, veterans and those experiencing long-term or chronic homelessness.
