" In some cases there is no hypothesis; the investigator just wants to "see what is there". For example, in a prevalence study there is no hypothesis to test, and the size of the study is determined by how accurately the investigator wants to determine the prevalence. If there is no hypothesis, then there is no statistical test. It is important to decide a priori which hypotheses are confirmatory (that is, are testing some presupposed relationship), and which are exploratory (are suggested by the data). A sensible plan is to limit severely the number of confirmatory hypotheses.

The investigator should then ask "are the data independent? " The next question is "what types of data are being measured? " It is helpful to decide the input variables and the outcome variables.

Supportive Housing Program (SHP) The Supportive Housing Program (SHP) provides funds for the development of supportive housing and supportive services, including innovative approaches to assist homeless persons in the transition from homelessness.

Supportive Housing Program (SHP)

SHP also promotes the provision of supportive housing to homeless persons to enable them to live as independently as possible. Eligible applicants include public housing authorities (excluding Fayette County, Jefferson County, and the city of Covington) and nonprofit organizations. Eligible activities include construction, acquisition, rehabilitation, leasing or expansion of transitional shelter facilities, permanent housing facilities for homeless disabled persons, or safe haven facilities for homeless disabled persons.

SHP may also provide funds for development of new or expanded services for the homeless without the development of new shelter facilities, provision of essential support services, costs of facility operations, or administrative costs for grants.

In comparison, only 6% of Americans are severely mentally ill (National Institute of Mental Health, 2009). In a 2008 survey performed by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, 25 cities were asked for the three largest causes of homelessness in their communities. Mental illness was the third largest cause of homelessness for single adults (mentioned by 48% of cities). Serious mental illnesses disrupt people’s ability to carry out essential aspects of daily life, such as self care and household management.

Poor mental health may also affect physical health, especially for people who are homeless. Better mental health services would combat not only mental illness, but homelessness as well.
