The State of Homelessness 2019 Report is Now Available

Introducing the State of Homelessness 2019 Report

The Alliance is pleased to release the State of Homelessness 2019. This web-based annual report uses data to chart the nation's progress towards ending homelessness. 

What's New This Year

Some new features were added to the State of Homelessness 2019, including:
  • Available Beds. We analyze the capacity of shelters and other temporary housing providers. On a given night, what number and percentage of people experiencing homelessness have a bed available to them? We answer that question. 
  • Racial and Ethnic Dynamics. Race and ethnicity figure significantly into the story of homelessness in America. African Americans, American Indians/Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, and Hispanics are over-represented in homeless counts. This year's report includes new information to address this.
  • Geography of Challenges. Many readers have wondered which areas have the biggest challenges. So, we identified states and CoCs with the greatest numbers and highest percentages of people experiencing homelessness.   

What's Standard 

The report updates material that was available in previous years: 
  • State and CoC Data. The State of Homelessness features maps with state and CoC-level data on homeless counts and rates of homelessness. 
  • At-Risk Numbers. The Alliance analyzes raw Census data to count and chart the number of Americans living doubled up or experiencing severe housing cost burdens.
  • Visualizations. The report offers visual representations of counts, trends, subgroup status, and available housing assistance.
