Homelessness

The Missouri Balance of State (BoS) CoC conducts a Point-in-Time Count throughout its 101 county geographic area each year as required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The count helps Missourians monitor trends in the homeless population and increases public awareness of homelessness.

Data Source: ACS - The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ESTIMATE of each indicator, which means there is a margin of error. Future versions of the dashboard will display margins of error. For now, exercise caution with 1-year estimates for Boone County, the City of Columbia and the Columbia School District. The 5-year estimates (for example 2012-2016) are much more reliable.2 of 22

For now, exercise caution with 1-year estimates for Boone County, the City of Columbia and the Columbia School District. The 5-year estimates (for example 2012-2016) are much more reliable.10 of 22

Data Source: ACS - The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ESTIMATE of each indicator, which means there is a margin of error. Future versions of the dashboard will display margins of error. For now, exercise caution with 1-year estimates for Boone County, the City of Columbia and the Columbia School District. The 5-year estimates (for example 2012-2016) are much more reliable.12 of 22

Homelessness

The Missouri Balance of State (BoS) CoC conducts a Point-in-Time Count throughout its 101 county geographic area each year as required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The count helps Missourians monitor trends in the homeless population and increases public awareness of homelessness.

Data Source: ACS - The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ESTIMATE of each indicator, which means there is a margin of error. Future versions of the dashboard will display margins of error. For now, exercise caution with 1-year estimates for Boone County, the City of Columbia and the Columbia School District. The 5-year estimates (for example 2012-2016) are much more reliable.15 of 22

Gini Index of Income Inequality

The Gini Index is a measure of income inequality ranging from 0 to 1. A value of 0 represents perfect income equality (everyone has the same income); a value of 1 represents complete inequality (one person has all the income and others have none).

Bolded values indicate margins of error, hover over them to view in detail.

Data Source: ACS - The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ESTIMATE of each indicator, which means there is a margin of error. Future versions of the dashboard will display margins of error. For now, exercise caution with 1-year estimates for Boone County, the City of Columbia and the Columbia School District. The 5-year estimates (for example 2012-2016) are much more reliable.19 of 22
