In this article, I introduce readers to two U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) data sources measuring homeless populations and resources that are devoted to reducing homelessness. HUD’s Point in Time (PIT) data contain homeless populations estimates (sheltered and unsheltered) and estimates for homeless subpopulations.
