Discussion Paper: Methodological Review of Counting the Homeless, 2006 (cat. no. 2050.0.55.001) - released 31/03/11

This discussion paper presents the initial findings of a review of the methodology used by Professors Chamberlain and MacKenzie to compile their estimates of the homeless population, as published in the ABS Australian Census Analytic Program output Counting the Homeless, 2006 (ABS cat. no. 2050.0). The work by Chamberlain and MacKenzie was ground-breaking, but the ABS has now decided that it should consider publishing official estimates of the homeless population.

The ABS will consult with stakeholders until the end of June 2011 on these initial findings, before finalising and publishing the proposed methodology for producing official estimates of homeless people based on Census data.

The outcome of the review is intended to be a consistent, transparent and repeatable process for estimating the number of people enumerated in the Census who may be homeless, using Census data for 2001, 2006 and to be repeated in 2011, and in future Censuses.
