INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development estimates nearly 6,000 people in Indiana were homeless this year.

It announced Thursday that volunteers counted 5,798 homeless people during a single night in January. The agency says that's a 10 percent drop from 2010.

HUD says more than 5,100 of the homeless population was located in emergency shelters or transitional housing programs and nearly 700 were living on the streets. The count does not include people who were living with friends and relatives.

It says the volunteers counted 663 homeless military veterans and 365 unaccompanied homeless youth and children.
