Interactive Map Shows Rate of Homelessness in Major Metro Areas

The National Alliance to End Homelessness has created an interactive map showing the rate of homelessness in 25 of the most populous metropolitan areas in the U.S. The majority of people experiencing homelessness on a given night are in these metro areas. Users can analyze a variety of data in each market, including the total rate of homelessness, and the size of the sheltered and unsheltered populations for family, individual, youth, veteran, and chronically homeless populations. Because counts of people experiencing homelessness do not generally align with metropolitan areas, these estimates provide a helpful way of comparing major metro areas.
