A

The unit inventory data element is an integer that tracks the total number of units available for occupancy as of the inventory start date.  Programs that do not have a fixed number of units (e.g., a congregate shelter program) may record the bed inventory, the number of residential facilities operated by the program, or the number of rooms used for overnight accommodation as the unit integer.
