/* SHORT TITLE:  Note on Data */

This is the only information EDS has on this study, other than variable
labels and value labels that are in the Spss .sav file.  This information
came from:


HUD surveyed a probability sample of 205 managers of shelters for the
homeless in counties with populations over 25,000, asking, "Among the
people you served on an average night this year, how many would you say had
been homeless for more than three years and how many had been homeless for
less than three months?" The shelter operators reported that about 70% of
the clients in shelters serving primarily families with children had been
homeless for less than three months. By contrast, shelters serving
primarily unaccompanied men reported that only 32% of their clients had
been homeless for less than three months.
