What does the "Data as of (date)" mean and how is it calculated?
The "Data as of Date" is shown in the header of all reports from HomelessData.com and is used to show how fresh the data set is that was reported over. To determine the "Data as of Date", the system takes all the projects included in the report, and calculates the most recent date data was uploaded per project. It then displays the oldest date of those in the report header.
In the scenario below, there are three projects that were included within a report that was run. Since the data for Project C was imported earlier than the data for Projects A and B, the date for this project is displayed for the "Data as of Date".
|Project||Most Recent Import Date|
|Project A||June 25|
|Project B||June 25|
|Project C||June 19|
|Data As Of Date||June 19|
