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.
