Integrated Data Systems
Many of today's important research questions are focused on the intersections between housing and health, education, employment, and so on. For example, the social determinants of health, which includes housing, is currently an important topic with increasing attention. Complementing this trend is a movement among federal and state agencies to invest in the creation of integrated administrative data systems to serve policy, practice, and research. Housing for individuals and families is an important piece of the whole-person puzzle. HUD's investment in cross-program and cross-agency collaborations to create or improve integrated administrative data systems would set the stage for answering many important policy and research questions for years to come.
It would also be helpful to explore the opportunities within integrated data systems to identify risk factors for homelessness and identify the characteristics of high users of health services and those most vulnerable populations to help communities prioritize homelessness resources more efficiently.
