Caveats / Comments

All lists: None of the different databases used as the basis for this exercise employs a consistent system of unique identifier codes that would allow for effective matching of records between databases. As a result, in many cases different databases have used different names and terminologies to refer to the same shelters. Wherever possible REACH has worked to match the same shelters across different lists using GPS triangulation, fuzzy matching approaches, and site visits. However, given the limitations of the data matches are not warranted to be 100% accurate in all cases and further verification may be required.
