Breaking Down the Numbers
2015 PIT Count
Each year during the last week of January the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) conducts a nationwide Point-In-Time (PIT) count, a census of the homeless. On that night, teams of volunteers hit the streets and visit shelters, soup kitchens, clothes closets and food pantries in an effort to interview all of the sheltered and unsheltered homeless in their communities. The PIT survey captures demographic information about the homeless, as well as information on health, mental health, substance abuse, veteran status, and history of domestic violence.

"A homeless person is one who “lacks a fixed, regular and adequate night-time residence; and has a primary night time residency that is (A) a supervised publicly or privately operated shelter designed to provide temporary living accommodations (B) an institution that provides a temporary residence for individuals intended to be institutionalized, or (C) a public or private place not designed for, or ordinarily used as, a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings”
