Regional Homelessness Data
Measuring results, monitoring performance, and building accountability
Data is a critical tool for preventing and ending homelessness. Because many variables affect homelessness and the situation is often changing, it is important to collect the numbers and characteristics of people experiencing homelessness, as well as information about services and how they are provided. These data are essential to understanding and improving our system.
