The Alliance report, State of Homelessness in America, documents the levels and changes in homelessness and related economic and demographic indicators. The second most common pre-shelter institutional living situation, after a medical facility, is incarceration. The national number of releases increased from 669,194 in 2007 to 679,738 in 2008, an increase of 10,544 people. The interactive map on the left shows the number of people discharged from prison in 2008, and the map on the right shows the change in this population from 2007 to 2008 in each state. [Note: the District of Columbia does not have a federal prison.]
