Escape Routes: Meta analysis of Homelessness in LA

April 2018, by Economic Roundtable. Underwritten by the Conrad Hilton Foundation

Chronic homelessness is a catastrophe and the result of multiple failures, both before and after the onset of homelessness. This meta-analysis of information about homelessness experienced in Los Angeles County frames issues to be addressed through direct services as well as research. It brings together 26 point-in-time data sets to provide a single panoramic description of people without homes who are living in places not meant for human habitation. The objective is to identify the common reality underlying the data and provide a description that is more comprehensive and reliable than information from any single source. Read the report here.
