PiT Data

Point-in-Time Count Data

The Tulsa Point-in-Time Count is an annual count of individuals and families experiencing homelessness completed as a mandate from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The count is completed on one day during the last 10 days in January using a combination of survey responses and Homeless Management Information System data.

The survey instrument contains basic demographics required for reporting to HUD as well as more in-depth questions added by the A Way Home for Tulsa team to better understand the needs of individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness. It is important to keep in mind that this data is primarily self-reported and provides only a brief snapshot of homelessness in Tulsa.
