Federal officials say the number of homeless people in Hawaii is up 8.6 percent since 2010 to more than 6,000, despite a drop in the national estimate.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development said today that of nearly 4,000 homeless households in the state, more than 700 include at least one adult and one child.

The report says the bulk of Hawaii’s homeless live in transitional housing or outside of shelters. Only about 1,200 of Hawaii’s homeless live in shelters.

The estimate is based on a count made on a single night in the last week of January. Nationwide there were more than 610,000 people homeless during the count, a 4 percent drop compared with the previous year.

The study included people in 3,000 cities and counties.
