September 1, 2017  |  Data and Graphics


Data reflect homelessness on a given night in 2016 according to the sum of annual Point-in-Time counts reported by Continuums of Care (CoCs) within the metropolitan statistical area (MSA). Most MSAs encompass multiple city or county-level CoCs. Where a CoC geography is only partially within the MSA, counts are estimated based on the proportion of the CoC’s total population that resides within the MSA. Population estimates are as of July 1, 2015, per the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2015 Annual Estimates of the Resident Population.
