Statistics on the homeless population are often hard to find. The good news is that a new report has been released by the Colorado Interagency Council on Homelessness. The Colorado Statewide Homeless Count has the results of a statewide survey conducted August 28, 2006. The report includes data on the reasons for homelessness, number of unsheltered homeless, race and ethnicity statistics, and homeless families.
