The 2013 Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR): Part 2 presents the most recent national estimates of homelessness, focusing on people who experience homelessness as individuals, 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.   This report is the second part of a two-volume series. The first part is called The 2013 AHAR: Part 1 - PIT Estimates of Homelessness in the U.S Report
