What is in this report
The LSA includes aggregate data from all housing and outreach programs in HMIS are collected for HUD's Annual Homelessness Assessment Report to Congress. CoCs now report this data in a process called the Longitudinal Systems Analysis (LSA).
How to understand this report
The LSA is meant to describe the overall scope of the homeless response system and how it is used over a one year period. The data is helpful is modeling how people experiencing homelessness access different parts of the homeless response system and what outcomes they reach.
Because LSA data only includes programs that participate in the statewide data system HMIS, it is important to know what and who are not included in this report before interpreting results.
