Point in Time Count
The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered people experiencing homelessness on a single night in January. HUD requires that Continuums of Care conduct an annual count of people experiencing homelessness who are sheltered in emergency shelter, transitional housing, and Safe Havens on a single night. Continuums of Care also must conduct a count of unsheltered people experiencing homelessness every other year (odd numbered years). Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally.
Housing Inventory Count
The Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is a point-in-time inventory of provider programs within a Continuum of Care that provide beds and units dedicated to serve people experiencing homelessness (and, for permanent housing projects, where homeless at entry), categorized by five Program Types: Emergency Shelter; Transitional Housing; Rapid Re-housing; Safe Haven; and Permanent Supportive Housing.
System Performance Measures
The Department of Housing and Urban Development emphasizes viewing the local homeless response as a coordinated system instead of programs and funding sources that operate independently in a community. To facilitate this perspective, the federal government requires communities to measure their performance as a coordinated system, in addition to analyzing performance by specific projects or project types.

Racial Disparity Analysis Reports
The CoC Analysis Tool: Race and Ethnicity draws on Point-In-Time Count and American Community Survey data to facilitate analysis of racial disparities among people experiencing homelessness. Such an analysis is a critical first step in identifying and changing racial and ethnic disparities in our systems and services.
CoC Performance Report
CoC Performance Profile Reports provide a snapshot of a CoC's performance in addressing homelessness using performance indicators such as the length of time persons have been homeless, returns to homelessness over time, and exits to permanent housing.
