Homelessness in California: Where Homeless Students Attend School

Homelessness disproportionately impacts children, therefore data about student homelessness is of critical importance to improving educational outcomes.

In California, close to a quarter of a million students are homeless. ICPH created this interactive map of student homelessness to provide information critical to improving California’s programs and policies. The data for this map comes from the U.S. Department of Education and is for the 2014–15 school year, which is the most recent complete set of data we have available for analysis. We will periodically update the map with new years as they become available.

All of the information in the map has been carefully checked to ensure that the privacy rights of students are protected and that the data is in adherence with FERPA.

Use the interactive map.
