This project focuses on predicting homelessness using Emergency Shelter Bed Night services.
System Overview shows an overview of the housing system. It focuses on service providers as a unit of analysis and uses this page to describe how clients move between providers through the housing system.
Service Provider Rank shows which Service Providers had the most clients predicted to be homeless.
Predicting Homelessness helps examine individual service providers and demographics associated with clients to understand how that changes one’s likelihood of being homeless in both six and twelve month time horizons.
The top half of this page provides some descriptive statistics of our various scales of analysis: project types (of which there are 7 and a federally standardized definition), service providers (whom are specific to the Dallas metropolitan area and who we assigned aliases to protect their identities) and clients who are using the overall housing system. Each service provider may offer various programs and services and can be categorized within one of the seven project types.
