(Las Vegas,NV)  —  The valley’s homeless population is lower than originally estimated.  The Southern Nevada Regional Planning Commission announced last month that its survey showed more than 11,000 homeless in the Vegas area.  A math correction has brought that number down to nearly 9500 people. 

The new figure shows despite the recession, there are 29% fewer homeless in the valley compared to the last survey in 2009.  Officials credit outreach programs for helping more people get into permanent housing.
