Recidivism - Returns to Homelessness

"Recidivism - Returns to Homelessness" uses the on board Outbound Recidivism fields available in the data analysis tool. While similar to the HUD System Performance Measures, the Outbound Recidivism fields do not meet all the requirements of the SPM report. This dashboard is not intended to be compared with the SPM.
