as some experts tell me when it comes to homelessness, it is often times people's perceptions that matter more than reality. one of san francisco's most pervasive and pressing problems might be getting a little better. according to data thursday from the latest point in time count, the number of people experiencing homelessness in the city dropped from over 8000 to about 7750, a 3.5% decrease. much of the drop can be attributed to the massive amount of resources the city received during the pandemic. >> city seven gotten much help from the california government or the federal government until this happened, so that makes a difference. >> of those counted, 57% were unsheltered and living on the street. while the racial and athletic makeup of those experienced state relatively the same, latinos with a noticeable exception. homelessness in that community
shot up 55% in the past three years, and example of the toll covid has taken. >> many of the latinx people who became homeless during the pandemic lost jobs or were living in insecure housing situations. >> while the latest report offers some hope, many say it is important to remember the limitations. >> it is a snapshot of a single night. it doesn't capture people who experience homelessness for short periods of time. >> experts say access to affordable housing remains the biggest article to overcoming homelessness in san francisco. for decades, the city hasn't built enough. >> san francisco has the slowest housing approval process in the united states and we make it difficult to build housing and very expensive. >> until that changes, those on the front lines say people's views will continue to lag reality. >> the numbers don't matter, it
is perception and the perception is the problem is getting worse even though the numbers are going down. >> one thing i heard about why the perception might not ranch -- match the reality is there seem to be more tent encampments around the city. that is probably because homeless folks were given free tends to live in to try to keep them safe. that is possibly adding to the perception that the problem is getting worse. live in the newsroom, tim johns. ama: thank you. district 6 which includes the tenderloin neighborhood is home to about half of the city's homeless population. we have put together a documentary. it is on the app. the affidavit may be partly unsealed. a judge weighed in today. a warning for apple users. vulnerabilities in many popular devices. gearing up for a beloved san francisco decision.
