Deaths of those experiencing homelessness in the Valley rise in 2022

Each year the Maricopa County Medical Examiner releases a report on deaths in the Valley. A section of the report is dedicated to the Valley’s homeless populations and shows deaths are rising. Last year, there were 732 deaths from those experiencing homelessness in Maricopa County, a 42% increase from the year prior. The Medical Examiner's report notes that natural deaths that occur in the care of a healthcare provider are not counted by their office.
