Services: Survey analysis, Data analysis, Survey design

Research Area: Housing & Community Development

Since 2007, the Indiana Public Policy Institute (PPI) and the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention (CHIP) have worked together to conduct the Marion County Point-in-Time (PIT) Homeless Count. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that communities conduct an annual count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. The 2017 Point-in-Time Homeless Count (PIT Count) was conducted on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, in accordance with HUD guidelines. The data and findings from the PIT Count explore the issue of homelessness in Marion County and inform policy makers and service providers.
