This Year the Number of Homeless People in America will Increase by 40%


  • 40 million people have no money to pay installments and house rent due to rising unemployment

  • In July, 45 million Americans surveyed the Census Bureau that they did not pay the previous month's installment or rent of the house

The number of homeless people in America is increasing. This problem is already there, but the virus outbreak has made the situation worse. Five lakh 60 thousand Americans were homeless in 2019. 16.5% of these (about 92 thousand) were in the state of New York.

Most people in New York City do not have a roof over their heads in American metros. However, extensive arrangements have been made to shelter the homeless in the city. In Los Angeles, on the other hand, more people have camped on the streets. According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, 40% of the homeless are blacks.

 An analysis of unemployment figures at Columbia University showed that the number of homeless would increase by 40% by the end of 2020. The situation has worsened in the recent past.

There has been a 3% increase in the last year. In July, 45 million Americans surveyed the Census Bureau that they did not pay the previous month's installment or rent of the house. .It is suspected that a similar situation will prevail next month. Presbyterian Church Assistance of New York explains, "The life of homeless people has become more destructive during the COVID-19 era. Lockdown has reduced the number of people on the streets.

That's why destitute people are passers-by. The money has stopped getting from me. A person told me that he has not eaten anything for three days. In difficult times, the condition of blacks is getting worse. Less than half of blacks had employment in April, Labor Department figures show. In the first quarter of 2020, 74% of Europeans had their home. On the other hand, only 44% of blacks fall into this category.
