The number of unhoused people in Los Angeles County has increased by 4.1% since 2020, with officials warning of a potential for “significant increases” in the years ahead as pandemic-era safety nets end, according to the latest point-in-time tally by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority.

According to numbers released Thursday, in the city of Los Angeles, the figure is up 1.7% from 2020. The count tallied 69,144 homeless people in the county and 41,980 in the city.

“These results are disheartening,” Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn said. “This count may contain signs of progress, but no one is going to celebrate when there are this many people sleeping on our streets.”
