US hotspots surveyed

 
May 10th 2012
 

 

The word ‘hotspot’, when used by local authorities across the UK, usually preceeds a council action to move on rough sleepers, but in a recent survey of US homeless population it had literal significance.

Using information from the National Alliance to End Homelessness, Atlantic Monthly mapped the numbers in the United States’ large homeless population, specifically asking why some places had significantly higher levels of homelessness?

And their results? They concluded that a key reason for some cities having higher numbers is that they’re warmer. The southern states, with their warmer climates, make life more comfortable, so people on the streets gravitate towards cities such a New Orleans.
