Using the 2013 Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress, the Texas Tribune has created an interactive graphic depicting homelessness in Texas.

Texas was among the states with the largest decreases in the homeless population, according to the report. The state saw a 13 percent decrease since 2012 and a nearly 26 percent decrease since 2007. Still, Texas was one of five states that together accounted for more than half of the homeless people in the country. The others were California, New York, Florida and Massachusetts

Users can search the interactive by local area. To see more detailed information about Denton City and County visit the local Point-in-Time Count information pages.
