The Longitudinal Study analysis (LSA) is a system-level performance report that looks at household data rather than person-level data.  It includes data from Emergency Shelter (ES), Transitional Housing (TH), Rapid Rehousing (RRH), and Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) projects participating in HMIS. It does not include Street Outreach (SO), Diversion or Prevention projects. The reporting period is FY 2018 (10/1/2017 to 9/30/2018).

Households use different combinations of project types during the time they are served in the homeless system. These project type combinations are referred to as pathways. Each pathway has different average cumulative days homeless, exits to permanent housing and returns to the homeless system. The system map shows performance for the main project types in the homeless system.
