How many homeless people have to live on the streets in the USA?

According to the White House website, 552,830 were counted as homeless in January 2018, but this number may be higher. Sources on Wikipedia indicate that more than 4 million people in the United States may be homeless, according to private state and local reports.

• About 65 percent of all homeless people in the US live in a shelter.
• 8.4 million adult Americans suffered from both mental health disorders and substance abuse in 2012.
• A person working full time in the US at minimum wage earns about $ 13,624 a year.

While the vast majority of Americans live in a shelter with four walls, a floor and a roof they call home, not everyone is so lucky. Some people have to sleep every night in the streets or in a homeless shelter…

According to the White House website, 552,830 were counted as homeless in January 2018, but this number may be higher.

Sources on Wikipedia state that more than 4 million people in the United States may be homeless, according to private state and local reports.

While there are differences, some general trends may prevail. From the White House figures, the homeless were divided into two categories: those who live on the streets and those who are sheltered but without a permanent home.

Those living on the streets make up 35 percent of the homeless, and 65 percent of the homeless who are sheltered but do not have a permanent home.

What is the total percentage of these numbers? According to WhiteHouse.gov, in the US any night, the overall homeless population represents 0.2 percent of the country's population.

Considering the figures from state and local reports on homelessness on Wikipedia, approximately 1.2 percent of the entire US population is homeless.

So why do people stay homeless? Obviously, most of us would prefer to live in the comfort of a safe, comfortable and permanent home. The reasons why people become homeless are varied and can be complex. It may include, but is not limited to, low income, unemployment, poor social ties, substance abuse, mental illness, and a history of imprisonment.

Low Income and Unemployment

A small percentage of the homeless are on the streets because they have just lost their jobs and can no longer pay their rent or mortgages. According to HomelessHub.ca, a larger proportion of the homeless population works but cannot earn enough to cover their rent needs.

According to the National Homeless Coalition, a full-time employee earns $ 13,624 in the US at the minimum wage of 40 hours a week all year round.

It's easy to see how many working people are left homeless, according to the Census ACS survey, with an average monthly gross home rent of $ 1,012 in the US in 2017.

Mental Illness, Substance Abuse and Imprisonment

Suffering from an untreated mental illness is a way that easily takes people to the streets. It is estimated that a third of all homeless people suffer from a severe mental illness, which means they lived on their own.
