New York conducts annual homeless count, critics say it's flawed

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 02/10/2015 - 22:33
By Ellen Wulfhorst NEW YORK (Reuters) - Thousands of volunteers fanned out across New York before dawn on Tuesday to conduct the city's yearly homeless survey, trying to count the people who wander the sidewalks all night, sleep in subways for warmth or slip into the shadows to avoid being seen. New York City, like other major U.S. cities, uses a count of people living on its streets and alleys, parks and subways to estimate program needs, allocate resources and educate the public on issues facing the poorest residents. Critics say it grossly undercounts the homeless population, while others say a flawed count is better than none. Last year's count by the Department of Homeless Services found 3,357 street homeless people in New York City, most of them in the subways.
