From the Highlights: "Policymakers have raised concerns about the extent to which recent increases in homelessness are associated with the availability of affordable housing. Moreover, counting the homeless population is a longstanding challenge. GAO [Government Accountability Office] was asked to review the current state of homelessness in the United States. This report examines (1) efforts to measure homelessness and HUD's [Department of Housing and Urban Development] oversight of these efforts and (2) factors associated with recent changes in homelessness."
