Description
 
This report, the 4th in a series of annual reports about homelessness in the U.S., breaks new ground by being the first report to provide year-to-year trend information that explores changes in the patterns of homelessness over time. The 2008 AHAR focuses on two types of national estimates of homelessness. Point-in-time estimates provide the total number of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single-night in January. These estimates are based on local community counts of homeless persons, and the report compares point-in-time estimates for 2006 through 2008. It also provides one-year estimates of the total sheltered population based on information from local Homeless Mgt. Info. Systems. The one-year estimates account for persons who used a homeless residential program at any time during a 12-month period. The report compares one-year estimates for 2007 and 2008. Community participation in the AHAR has grown significantly and is expected to continue during the next few years. Between 2007 and 2008, the number of communities participating in the AHAR increased from 98 to 222, the largest one-year increase since the Dept. of Housing and Urban Devt. (HUD) began collecting information for the AHAR. The report comes at a time of economic uncertainty and provides a few early indicators of how the economic downturn may be affecting the housing situation of low-income and vulnerable Americans. Tables and graphs.
