Federal report blurs reality

 
December 6th 2016
 

The Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has announced that homelessness is declining across the US.

However, homelessness data collected by many local charities and state-run agencies contradict HUD‘s findings.

Data collected by Utah State shows a 17 per cent rise in the number of homeless families, whilst the HUD report claims there was a 19.5 per cent reduction in that state.

The HUD’s claims are being criticised as they used a series of “snapshot counts”, which counts only the number of homeless people on the street in one night. This is not as accurate as data collected throughout the whole year.
