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. While only a small fraction of people whose housing units are foreclosed upon end up experiencing homelessness, the impact of the current foreclosure crisis on the entire housing market and overall economy has been profound. The national number of housing units in foreclosure increased from 2,330,483 to 2,824,674 in 2009, an increase of 21 percent. The interactive map on the left shows the number of foreclosed housing units in 2009, and the map on the right shows the change in this number from 2008 to 2009 in each state. [The District of Columbia (2,294 housing units and 25 percent decrease from 2008 to 2009) is included in the national number, but not shown in the maps below.]
