Los Angeles Times Homeless Story

This map by the Los Angeles Times show that the homeless are almost everywhere in L.A. County.

Over three days in January, 5,500 volunteers spread out across Los Angeles County to do the impossible: count the homeless. Results of the survey, released in May 2015 by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, estimated a homeless population of 44,359, an increase of 12% since the last survey in 2013.

For the first time, making it possible to show the dispersion of the growing homeless population into nearly every neighborhood.

The map shows a dot for every homeless person counted. The dots are distributed randomly within each of the 1,684 census tracts surveyed and so do not represent the actual location where the homeless person was living. Vehicles and encampments occupied by the homeless are shown as single dots.
