Coordinated Entry Data

Overview

As part of its commitment to ensuring that all people experiencing homelessness receive housing and services as quickly and responsively as possible, the LA BOSCOC tracks various data about the Coordinated Entry System.

This data is not intended to provide a snapshot of homelessness in any given Region or at any given time. Rather, it is intended to provide a “long view” of how people experiencing homelessness move from literal homelessness to housing.

Data Cautions

The LA BOSCOC has issued the following cautions regarding its data. All data in this section should be considered with these cautions in mind.

  • The LA BOSCOC significantly revised its Coordinated Entry System beginning April 1, 2019. The LA BOSCOC did not begin producing weekly assessment data until June 2019.

  • Lake Charles: the LA BOSCOC was not able to produce some data for Lake Charles until the week of June 17, 2019.

  • Natchitoches/Sabine: most data for this Region is not yet published due to its small sample size; expect to see more data moving into the latter half of 2019.

  • Plaquemines/St. Bernard: most data for this Region is not yet published due to its small sample size; expect to see more data moving into the latter half of 2019.

Data Availability

The LA BOSCOC currently publishes the following data (updated on a weekly basis):

  • Prioritization List: the number of households currently prioritized to receive housing;

    • By week;

    • By Region, including “any Region”, and for the CoC as a whole;

  • Pre-Prioritization: the number of households experiencing literal homelessness or fleeing domestic violence;

    • By week;

    • By Region and for the CoC as a whole;

    • By Coordinated Entry Access Point, including the number and percentage of households who should be added to the Prioritization List but are waiting for either:

      • Intervention case management; or,

      • Triage with the VI-SPDAT.

The LA BOSCOC has also published the following additional data:

  • Bed Utilization: comparing the bed utilization rates for CoC Program housing projects before Coordinated Entry was mandatory (January 2018) and after the LA BOSCOC released Coordinated Entry v2.0 (April 2019). Click here to view the LA BOSCOC’s Bed Utilization comparison.

  • Diversion: comparing the percentage of households who are returned to housing (on their own or with friends/family) without a public subsidy before diversion case management was mandatory (March 2019 and earlier) and after (beginning April 2019).

    • Note: this data should not be used for analysis until more data points have been gathered; currently, this data is for informational purposes only.

  • Point of Origin: This visualization presents data on persons who have interacted with the LA BOSCOC Coordinated Entry System at any point. It includes participants who are early in the diversion process as well as those who are on the priority list. During their initial assessment, participants are asked where their homelessness began, and this graph visualizes that data across the LA BOSCOC’s regions. All data is self-reported.
