Understanding the changing geography of homelessness in Australia (2001–16)

Sharon Parkinson, Swinburne University

This project provides a spatial analysis of the changing geography of homelessness and its structural drivers, including housing and labour markets, demographics and service use across Australian cities and regions between 2001 and 2016. Disaggregated analysis will inform service provision, housing and labour policies in preventing and responding to homelessness.
