2014 Summer Count Results
The 2013 results include the Balance of State and Lexington (Fayette County) and Louisville (Jefferson County).
In compliance with one of the recommendations from the KHC Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) Process Improvement Team, the Balance of State of Kentucky conducted the 2012 count through the HMIS. As this was not a required year by HUD, only residential programs (emergency and transitional housing) participated by logging into HMIS. The goal of this method was to generate aggregate data.
The online survey, first used in 2010, was continued for 2011. The 2011 count did not include Jefferson County/Louisville or Fayette County/Lexington. Only the Balance of State data is available.
In 2010, an online survey was introduced, to allow for a more streamlined process and real-time data collection across the state. The 2010 Point-In-Time Count took place throughout the state on Thursday, January 28, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m., local time.

The 2009 Point-In-Time Count of homeless in the Balance of State was modified due to inclement weather. The sheltered count was conducted on Thursday, January 29, 2009, between 12 midnight and 11:59 p.m. The unsheltered count of the homeless took place on February 19, 2009 between 12 midnight and 11:59 p.m.
To mitigate costs, control the integrity of the statewide count, and reduce the turnaround time, Kentucky Housing Corporation invested in the purchase of a scanner to process all surveys onsite.

Volunteers across the state conducted the Point-In-Time Count on January 24, 2008. For the first time ever, the entire state conducted the count at the same time using the same survey instrument. KHC coordinated the count in every county except Fayette and Jefferson. Due to separate funding applications from HUD, these two counties conduct their own count.

Scanable paper surveys were introduced in 2007. The forms were sent out of state to a company in Pennsylvania, with whom KHC had a pre-existing contract. This company was able to take the scanable forms and build the raw PITC data set.
At the first PITC in 2006, paper surveys were used to collect homeless respondent's information. All the data gathered was trasferred to an Excel spreadsheet for tabulation.
