Much of the data in the NHCEH report comes from figures recorded as part of the annual Point-in-Time count, a federally mandated count held across the country every Jan.
NHCEH and local officials say the count helps compare progress made each year, however they also say it only tells a portion of the story because it only looks at certain types of homelessness and doesn't count most of the increasing number of adults and youth who "couch-surf.
NHCEH and others urge individuals not to look at the figures in a vacuum, particularly because welfare officials, school districts, shelters and social service agencies throughout the area indicate their data shows significant increases almost across the board.
