Unsheltered Point in Time (PIT) Count 2014-2018

No longer updated: see current data at

Unsheltered Street Count by Municipality (2014‐2018), also known as Regional Homeless Point in Time Count. All communities participate in the unsheltered homeless count conducted during the last week of January. Numbers for all communities with the exception of Phoenix are a direct census of individuals interviewed by volunteers, law enforcement, and outreach workers. The City of Phoenix conducts a survey using an extrapolation method by which areas are designated “high density” or “low density” areas. Direct counts in those areas are then extrapolated to estimate the number of individuals experiencing homelessness in unsheltered situations within the City of Phoenix geographic boundaries.
