2016 AHAR Pt 2 Estimates of Homelessness in the U.S.The 2016 Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress (AHAR) Part 2: Estimates of Homelessness in the United States 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.
