Additional Data Points

School districts work to identify the number of students experiencing homelessness. In Wisconsin, the Department of Public Instruction gathers that information from across the state and publishes it on their website.

The Dane County Jail asks for current address each time someone is booked into custody. They provided a list of addresses for every booking over the last few years. CoC staff identified addresses, including no address provided, that may indicate someone was experiencing homelessness at the time of booking. The data shows, that, on average, 13% of the Dane County jail annual bookings were for people presumed to be experiencing homelessness.
