National Survey of Homeless Assistance Providers

Product ID: C1-Z96-HAPC-25-US1


Subject Content: CD-ROM containing results from the National Survey of Homeless Assistance Providers and Clients (NSHAPC) conducted to provide updated information on homeless assistance programs and their clients. The survey was a source of data for federal agencies administering homeless assistance programs and other interested parties. National in scope, NSHAPC was conducted under the direction of the Interagency Council on the Homeless and was not designed to produce a count of homeless persons.

The survey is based on a statistical sample of 76 metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas, including small cities and rural areas. Data for the survey were collected between October 1995 and November 1996.

Data deal with program type and the services delivered. User data focuses on characteristics such as age, race/ethnicity, sex, family status, history of homelessness, employment, education, veteran status, and use of services and benefits.

Also available as downloadable files and from HUD User as printed and online reports.
