Analysis of homelessness in Europe

Homeless 010

Experts in fifteen EU Member States completed a questionnaire exploring the extent of statistical data on homelessness in their countries. The experts were also asked to summarize any relevant statistical research on homelessness published in their countries since 2009, the year in which the last European Review of Statistics on Homelessness was published by the European Observatory on Homelessness (EOH).1 The countries included were the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK. All countries except Finland show an increase in homelessness.
