[A quick description of the data, how it’s collected, when it’s updated, etc] If you are interested in using this data for a research paper, news story, or another project, we ask that you please first contact Eric Samuels to discuss the data and information you will be extracting.

Total Number of People Experiencing Homelessness

This number represents the total number of people who fell into homelessness in Texas during the time frame shown within the homeless response systems participating in the Texas Homeless Data Sharing Network (THDSN).

State of Texas Overall Map

This large Texas map shows the number of people experiencing homelessness in the THDSN by quarter. The percentage category of the selected county highlighted by your cursor is of the total persons in the system during that time period instead of presenting specific percentages for each county, the percentages are grouped by categories to further ensure the anonymity of people in the system.

Total Number of People Entering & Exiting Homelessness

These numbers represent every person who fell into homelessness in Texas during the year shown as well as those who exited homelessness. In some cases, a person may have fallen into homelessness two or more times during the year.

Homelessness By Population

Please read the breakdown of the data below as you view each section.

    • Choose Time Period: Use the slider tool below to reveal statistics on all people experiencing homelessness and Veterans, including sheltered and unsheltered status, as well as the percentage breakdown of household types by quarter year.

    • Racial Composition: These line graphs depict the population of people experiencing homelessness compared to the overall population of Texas. The glaring disparity is the over-representation of Black Texans experiencing homelessness compared to their representation in the overall population.

    • Persons in Households Without Children: Use the drop-down menu under “Choose Grouping” to view the population of people experiencing homelessness by household type, gender, and race.
