LA Homelessness Risk Map

This mapping project draws attention to key indicators that lead to homelessness including evictions, health disparities, and rent affordability. It also analyzes all indicators that lead to homelessness (e.g., poverty, unemployment, disabilities, public assistance, rent burden, domestic violence, mental illness, etc.) for a more holistic approach to the issue. The map overlaps several indicators to see where one or more risk factors increase the risk of homelessness throughout LA County.
