Should I count a provider that—as a matter of practice—does not exit a client until he/she has been unseen for a defined period of time—e.g., 90 days?

In general, communities should attempt to obtain the most accurate information possible, and in some cases, communities can retroactively record an exit date as the last day that the client was seen (or received services). In other cases, communities can impute an exit date if the shelter operates like an over-night shelter—meaning that everyone must exit and then re-enter the facility on a daily basis, rather than reserve beds for an undefined period of time. If a community is unable to impute exit dates, discuss this situation with your AHAR data Liaison.
