Top 10 U.S. Cities With A High Homelessness Rate

List Criteria: The top ten big U.S. metropolitan area by rate of homelessness

This is a fact-based list of the top ten U.S. cities with a high homelessness rate, as ranked by experts at The National Alliance To End Homelessness, which also factors in their surrounding metropolitan areas. The homeless population by city is calculated with the help of census data. 

The national average of the rate of homelessness is 21 people for every 10,000. The average rate for the highest homeless population cities on this list is a little above 46 people for every 10,000. And as you can see, California has more large metropolitan areas with a homelessness rate above the national average on this top ten list than any other state.

What cities have the most homeless people? Believe it or not Tampa, New Orleans and Honolulu are at the top of the list, not cities you'd expect like New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

And please, after you read this list of top U.S. cities by their homelessness rate, donate to or volunteer at a shelter near you.
