  • Homelessness Data & Trends:  The U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) is the only federal agency solely dedicated to preventing and ending homelessness in the United States.  It harnesses the collective power of 19 federal agencies to drive a coordinated federal homelessness strategy and to support state and local efforts to prevent and end homelessness. 



  • HUD User Datasets: The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides interested researchers with access to the original datasets generated by PD&R-sponsored data collection efforts, including the American Housing Survey, median family incomes and income limits, as well as microdata from research initiatives on topics such as housing discrimination, the HUD-insured multifamily housing stock, and the public housing population.
