Who are the homeless
I’ve been wanting to visualize homelessness for quite a while, but didn’t find any data until today. This dataset contains several attributes of homelessness (chronic or temporary, sheltered or unsheltered, family or inidividual, etc) by US state.
Breaking down these percentage by location, we can observe:
- Nevada has lowest percentage of homeless in families and highest % of unaccompanied youth
- Guam has lowest percentage of sheltered and highest percentage of homeless families
- South Dakota has the lowest percentage of chronically homelessness
