Methodology for AZ-501 - Tucson/Pima County CoC
Sheltered Population Total
1. What data source(s) was used to produce the total number of people included in the sheltered
population (staying in an emergency shelter, Safe Haven, or transitional housing) on the night of the
count? Please indicate the percentage of the PIT count derived from each of the sources. (If a source
was not used, please enter zero).
HMIS Data 95%

Provider-level surveys 0%

Client-level surveys 5%

Observation 0%

Other 0%

Total 100%

2. Was the CoC able to collect information about the number of people being sheltered on the night of
the count from all emergency shelters, Safe Havens, and transitional housing projects listed on the
HIC or only some? listed on your HIC or only some?
- Complete census count

3. What information or method(s) was used to de-duplicate the count of the total number of people
included in the sheltered population?
- Comparison of personally identifying information (PII), such as name, date of birth, and Social Security
Number
- Comparison of unique client identifiers (not PII)

- Blitz count of persons in shelters (i.e., count occurred at same time to avoid double counting)

Sheltered Subpopulation
4. What data source(s) was used to produce the demographic and subpopulation data included in the
sheltered population (staying in an emergency shelter, Safe Haven, or transitional housing) on the
night of the count? (select all that were used)

- HMIS Data

- Client-level surveys

5. Was the CoC able to collect information about the demographic and subpopulation characteristics
of all sheltered people or only some?
- All sheltered people

6. Looking at the change in your sheltered count from last year's count, please choose up to three
reasons that best explains these changes from the drop down list below.
- Change in transitional housing capacity

- Change in permanent supportive housing capacity

- Change in other supportive housing subsidy capacity


Please provide a brief description of these specific factors (500 word limit):

Fewer individuals, including Veterans, were in Transitional Housing programs, as the VA GPD programs had
a reduction in beds and the CoC has reallocated some Transitional Housing programs to Rapid Rehousing or
Permanent Supportive Housing.
The PHA's Homeless Preference Program has also allowed more homeless access to additional permanent
housing options.

Unsheltered Population
7. What approach(es) was used to count the total number of people included in the unsheltered
population during the PIT count. (select all that were used)

- Night of the count - complete census

- Night of the count - known locations

- Night of the count - random sample

- HMIS

7a. Were certain areas within the CoC geography specifically excluded because the CoC had
reason to believe there were no unsheltered people in those areas?
Yes

7b. How did the CoC select the areas that were included for canvassing?

- Areas were not selected randomly, but an effort was made to use local knowledge to target known
locations (e.g., areas with known concentrations of unsheltered homeless people)
7b1. Did the CoC adjust the information in some way (e.g., statistical adjustment or extrapolation)
to account for areas within the CoC geography that were not canvassed but where unsheltered
people might have been on the night of the PIT count?
Yes

7c. In areas that were canvassed, did the CoC count all unsheltered people in those areas or a
sample of people?
- All people encountered during the count

8. What information or method(s) was used to de-duplicate the total count of people in the
unsheltered population? (Check all that apply)

- Comparison of personally identifying information (PII), such as name, date of birth, and Social Security
Number
- Comparison of unique client identifiers (not PII)

- Blitz count of unsheltered people (i.e., canvassing of different areas occurred at same time to avoid double
counting)
- Interview/survey question(s) with screening questions (e.g., have you already completed a count survey)

Unsheltered Subpopulations
9. What approach(es) was used to collect demographic and subpopulation data about unsheltered
people included in the unsheltered population during the PIT count?
- Surveys/interviews of people identified as unsheltered on the night of the PIT count
10. Were all people who were encountered during canvassing on the night of the count or during post
night of the count PIT activities asked to complete a survey/interview?
- All people encountered were surveyed

11. What information or method(s) was used to produce an unduplicated total count of homeless
people across your sheltered and unsheltered populations?
- Comparison of personally identifying information (PII), such as name, date of birth, and Social Security
Number
- Comparison of unique client identifiers (not PII)

- Blitz count of unsheltered people (i.e., sheltered and unsheltered counts occurred at same time to avoid
double counting)
- Interview/survey question(s) with screening questions (e.g., have you already completed a count survey)

12. Looking at the change in your unsheltered count from last year's count, please choose up to three
reasons that best explains these changes from the drop down list below
- Change in awareness of PIT count and relevant resources

- Change in transitional housing capacity

- Impact of coordinated entry

Please provide a brief description of these specific factors (500 word limit):

Fewer individuals, including Veterans, were in Transitional Housing programs, as the VA GPD programs had
a reduction in beds and the CoC has reallocated some Transitional Housing programs to Rapid Rehousing or
Permanent Supportive Housing.
