Reports & Data

The RTFH is responsible for collecting, tracking, and reporting out on a significant amount of data as it pertains to homelessness in our region.

Many of the reports are mandated by funding sources; however, there are also reports such as the Dashboards and System Framework that provide timely and relevant insights into the progress and performance of the CoC in meeting its mission.

RTFH Dashboards

RTFH Public Data Dashboards

The public dashboards use data from the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) and are meant to provide interested stakeholders and community members insights to better understand individuals and families accessing homeless services, performance of our homeless crisis response system, and help with identifying gaps in housing and service needs. 

Community Analysis DashboardsThis dashboard is based on a system wide APR report for FY2020 (10/1/2020 – 09/30/2021) and shows de-duplicate clients count in the entire HMIS system.

Community Snapshot DashboardsThis is a project level dashboard that can be filtered by specific program names and different data ranges anytime between 10/01/2019 –  09/30/2021. The data quality section on this dashboard can be used as a tool to work toward improving individual program data quality.   

Community Performance DashboardsThis dashboard is based on the HUD system performance measure for FY2020 (10/1/2020 – 09/30/2021) and shows our system of care system performance.

LSA: Stella Performance Module

Stella is an analysis and strategy tool that helps CoCs to understand how their system is performing and to model an optimized system that fully addresses homelessness in their area.

Performance (Stella P) relies on dynamic visuals of CoCs’ LSA data to illustrate how households move through the homeless system, and to highlight outcome disparities.

HUD System Performance Measures

HUD System Performance Measures report on local homeless response as a coordinated system. These measures are required to be reported yearly. 

The Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR)

The Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) is an annual report to the U.S. Congress that provides nationwide estimates of homelessness, including information about the demographic characteristics of homeless persons, service use patterns, and the capacity to house homeless persons. The San Diego County reports summarize our community’s contribution to the national AHAR.


Housing Inventory Count (HIC)

The Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is a point-in-time inventory of provider programs within a Continuum of Care that provide beds and units dedicated to serve persons who are homeless, categorized by five Program Types: Emergency Shelter; Transitional Housing; Rapid Re-housing; Safe Haven; and Permanent Supportive Housing. The annual HIC report submitted to HUD is available by year below.


WeAllCount (PIT)

Mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), this annual Point-in-Time (PIT) count provides an estimate of the number of homeless persons throughout San Diego County. The count includes persons living “on the street” or staying in homeless shelters. Additional descriptive information is drawn from the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) for sheltered persons and through in-depth questionnaires conducted with approximately 20% of the unsheltered persons, enabling us to better understand the characteristics of those who are homeless in our community. The PIT results below are organized by year.
