The Fousing First model made a lot of sense when I first saw it in 2009. It will take a little time to verify the data based on the night in January census. Deaths could also account for it based on the very little information provided in the article. I would like to have seen some other ratios and counts.

My first thought was also wondering about how deaths might play into this. Vets who did combat are an aging population.

For the 2020 to 2022 period - wasn’t most of the country under an eviction/foreclosure moratorium? I wonder if that plays a part.

Good point. That probably did play a role. We can conclude the moratorium had a positive outcome.

How many vets died from covid complications or opioid overdoses during that period?

And, being homeless, makes both of their problems more deadly.

Yes, more data is always good. On the face of it, though, this does seem to be very uplifting news.
