California Launches New Homelessness Database

Last week, California introduced a publicly accessible database, called the Homeless Data Integration System, that aggregates homelessness data from 44 databases across the state. The website breaks down efforts by locality and will soon provide more detailed metrics to help policymakers better understand homelessness. “For the first time, we will have the necessary data and tools to better coordinate statewide services” said Ali Sutton, deputy secretary for homelessness under the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency.
