The Seventh Annual (2011) Homeless Assessment Report to Congress

U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development 

December 2012 

The 2011 AHAR presents the most recent national estimates of homelessness, focusing on people who experience homelessness by themselves, as family members, and as members of specific subpopulations. For each of these populations, the estimates describe how homelessness has changed over time and provide a demographic profile of homelessness in America. The report documents how many people are using shelter programs for homeless people, and how many people are in unsheltered locations. The AHAR is delivered each year to the U.S. Congress, and its contents are used to inform Federal, State, and local policies to prevent and end homelessness. The information pertaining to homeless veterans is incorporated into this report, and HUD will no longer issue a separate supplemental AHAR on homeless veterans.
