L.A.’s 2023 homeless count has concluded, but according to a January 26 article in the

Los Angeles Times , a Rand Survey questions the validity of the annual “point in time”

count and suggests that the count is subject to error and limiting… ”its value as a measure

of trends and as a tool in policy decisions.” The Rand Study, conducted from 2021 t 2022,

also found a higher incidence of chronic homelessness. “Nearly 80% told Rand surveyors

they had been homeless more than a year and 57% for more than three years.”
