Step 2

Now go to “ALL” or “ALL INDIVIDUALS”

The information you will find on this dashboard is updated monthly (usually around the 15th) to ensure that our supporters and partners have the most accurate data available.

“ALL CLIENTS GRAPH” Here you can view many different data points. This screen covers all individuals on the By-name-List for the last 13 months.


Step 3

Select a month to view homelessness and housing data in Anchorage for that point in time.

Hover anywhere on the graph to view to view how many individuals were actively experiencing homelessness at that point in time.

(Clarification: these are those interacted with the Homeless Response System in the chosen month. Whether at an emergency shelter, street outreach, coordinated entry, etc. It does not include individuals that are in housing. If they used to be homeless and now are in permanent housing they will not be captured in this number. It is just individuals who are actively experiencing literal homelessness.)


Step 4

“INFLOW” shows the number of individuals new to the system that had not interacted with the Homeless Response System within the past 2 years.


If an individual was homeless 20 years ago but has been stably housed for the last 2 years, they will be considered “NEW TO SYSTEM”.


Step 5

“RETURNED FROM HOUSED” is someone who was housed and returned from housing within that 2-year period. This includes if they were housed through provider or if they found housing on their own.



Step 6

“RETURNED FROM INACTIVE” refers to anyone who was not heard from for over 90 days but who touches the Homeless Response System again within 2 years.



Step 7

“HOUSING PLACEMENTS” refers to anyone who is known to be stably housed either through providers or on their own.



Step 8

“LENGTH OF TIME FROM HOMELESS TO HOUSED” you can view the number of clients housed at a point in time, as well as the “AVERAGE DAYS FROM MINIMUM PROJECT START DATE TO HOUSED” (first day the individual interacted with the Homeless Response System).



Step 9

“AVERAGE DAYS FROM APPROX. DATE HOMELESSNESS EPISODE STARTED TO HOUSED” will be a self-reported number by individual experiencing homelessness.

This number usually varies from “AVERAGE DAYS FROM MINIMUM PROJECT START DATE TO HOUSED” because anything after 2 years of stable housing is considered a new experience of homelessness.



Step 10

“OUTFLOW” Is anytime an individual gets into stable housing, either through supported exit (insert definition?) or self-resolved (insert definition?).
