New Hampshire’s homeless population is down by 4 percent this year.
The data is included in a report released Thursday by the New Hampshire Coalition to End Homelessness.
Director Cathy Kuhn says the slight drop is good news, particularly after an 11 percent increase from 2010 to 2011.
But big picture, Kuhn says the issues isn’t going away.
Over the past two years, the number of homeless people increased in seven of the state’s 10 counties.
