2017 AHAR HDX Error Guide


Date Published: October 2017


This guide outlines all of the validation errors embedded within the Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) module in the Homelessness Data Exchange (HDX). A notice about an error will display in the HDX only if the conditions of the error are met. This guide focuses on the errors only, and not the warnings that may also be triggered within the system. Errors, as opposed to warnings, are things which should be impossible based on other information submitted. This guide is intended to help communities improve the quality of the data submitted for the AHAR and to offer transparency about the full list and description of errors embedded within the HDX.
