The Alliance report, State of Homelessness in America, documents the 2009 levels and 2008 to 2009 changes in homelessness and related economic and demographic indicators. During annual point-in-time counts, persons in families are distinguished from individuals experiencing homelessness. The nation's family homeless population increased from 236,904 in 2008 to 243,156 in 2009, an increase of 6,252 people. The interactive map on the left shows the family homeless population in 2009, and the map on the right shows the change in this population from 2008 to 2009 in each state. [The District of Columbia (2,294 people and 25 percent increase from 2008 to 2009) and Puerto Rico (340 people and 1 percent decrease) are included in the national number, but not shown in the maps below.]
