If a client is missing information upon their initial entry into an ES, TH, or PSH project, but provides that information at a later intake assessment, should the data reported in the AHAR reflect the information from the person’s first entry or include the later information?

In general, reports should use the information from the person's first entry within that reporting category for the AHAR reporting year. For example, if a person enters ES-IND four times, you should report their age, gender, ethnicity, Veteran status, etc. based on their characteristics at the first entry. However, if information from the first entry is missing, communities can look at other records during the reporting period to identify the information.
