Point-in-Time Homeless Count Data

These numbers were reported as part of the 2018 and 2019 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Counts by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. These counts represent a specific point-in-time in January of each year and are not representative of the total number of persons experiencing homelessness throughout the year. For both 2018 and 2019 counts, these breakdowns (except for the City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles County total) do not include unsheltered transition age youth (age 18-24), persons sheltered in domestic violence programs, nor persons sheltered through motel vouchers.

Permanent Housing Placements includes persons that have moved into permanent housing during the report period (through either rapid re-housing, permanent supportive housing, or other permanent destinations).

Further information on the homeless count and additional breakdowns for both 2018 and 2019 can be found on the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority website.
