Homelessness: A Data-Driven Learning Guide Go to Resource


Homelessness is the most visible and extreme consequence of poverty. The number of homeless persons in the U.S. is difficult to measure due to transience, seasonal fluctuation, and movement in and out of homelessness. Similarly, it is difficult to measure demographic characteristics of the homeless and how they are affected by their living conditions.

The goal of this exercise is to explore the characteristics of the Washington, DC Metropolitan area homeless population, and the relationship between homelessness and several measures of health. Frequency distributions, crosstabulation, and comparison of means will be used.
