Homelessness Statistics by State
The map below shows state-level estimates of individuals and families experiencing homelessness, based on:
- Community point-in-time counts conducted on a given night in January 2017, as reported by Continuums of Care to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
- Children and youth who experienced homelessness at any point during the 2016-2017 school year, as reported by public schools to the U.S. Department of Education, and displayed on this map.
Please note that the two data sets should not be used for comparative purposes, since they represent different methodologies and capture different types of information. Learn more about how differentiated data sources can help drive local planning and action.
