For Census 2000, the U.S. Census Bureau developed separate operations to enumerate people living in housing units and people living in group quarters. Locations classified as group quarters include such places as college dormitories, correctional facilities, nursing homes, group homes, military quarters, halfway houses, and emergency and transitional shelters. This report presents tabulations on people enumerated at emergency and transitional shelters – that is, at emergency shelters for people experiencing homelessness; shelters for children who are runaways, neglected, or without conventional housing; transitional shelters for people without conventional housing; and hotels and motels used to provide shelter for people without conventional housing. It does not include people enumerated at shelters for abused women (or shelters against domestic violence), transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing. (Authors)
