This layer contains detailed Point in Time counts of homeless populations from 2019. This layer is modeled after a similar layer that contains data for 2018, 2013, and 2008.Layer is symbolized to show the count of the overall homeless population in 2019, with a pie chart of breakdown of type of shelter. To see the full list of attributes available in this service, go to the "Data" tab, and choose "Fields" at the top right. The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. HUD requires that Continuums of Care Areas (CoCs) conduct an annual count of homeless persons who are sheltered in emergency shelter, transitional housing, and Safe Havens on a single night. CoCs also must conduct a count of unsheltered homeless persons every other year (odd numbered years). Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally.The Point-in-Time values were retrieved from HUD's Historical Data site. Original source is the 2019 sheet within the "2007 - 2019 PIT Counts by CoCs.xlsx" (downloaded on 3/10/2020) file. Key fields were kept and joined to the CoC boundaries available from HUD's Open Data site.Data note: MO-604 covers territory in both Missouri and Kansas. The record described in this file represents the CoC's total territory, the sum of the point-in-time estimates the CoC separately reported for the portions of its territory in MO and in KS.For more information and attributes on the CoC Areas themselves, including contact information, see this accompanying layer.Suggested Citation: U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)'s Point in Time (PIT) 2019 counts for Continuum of Care Grantee Areas, accessed via ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World on (date).
