• More relevant for service planning and shelter capacity

• Not for understanding the characteristics of persons who

will use shelter or transitional housing.

• over-represents individuals and families who use

shelters or transitional housing for long periods and…

• under-represents who cycle in an out of shelters and/

or have single, brief episodes of homelessness.

• Typically, 35 to 50 % of a PITC, but a much smaller

percent in longitudinal analysis.
