Why a census snapshot of the homeless

A life of rough sleeping, cycling in and out of prison, and living in rooming houses and crisis accommodation followed. Mr Keeney slept in a van for years.

On the census day next Tuesday, and for a week or so afterwards, Mr Keeney will be one of a number of "field officers" employed by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, in partnership with community organisations like the Council to Homeless Persons,to gather data from people who are experiencing homelessness.

But Mr Keeney believes the numbers inthe CBD are greater, more like 400, and dwarfed by themagnitude of "hidden" homelessness;people couch surfing orstaying in temporary, insecure accommodation. The 2011 census showed more than 100,000 Australians classified themselves as homeless on census night, up more than 20 per cent since the previous census in 2006.

There are some adjustments made to data collection for people who are homeless. The form is shorter grace kelly bag hermes replica one page and it is usually done through an interview, by service providers they know.

Thevalue of data without a name is reduced slightly, particularly for people experiencing homelessness, he says. "People might come along to multiple services, and hermes kelly sizes copy be hermes bag kelly replica counted multiple times, so it's an important part of getting an accurate record."

Since the last census, ballooning house prices and a poor jobs market have led to an increase of homelessness, says Council to Homeless Persons head Jenny Smith.

A cohesive state and federal strategy to tackle the housing crisis is crucial, she says.

"We don't want tobe standing here in 2021 at the next census,looking down the barrel of a homelessness epidemic that hermes kelly purse cheap has continued to spiral out of control."

Mr Keeney got his luminous, all over bodytattoos (including an apricot tinge to the whites of his eyes) done because he was sick of being a rough sleeper,andoverlooked. "It changed my life, people talk to me all the time".

A person is considered homeless if their current living arrangement is in a dwelling that is inadequate, has no tenure (or is short, or not extendable), or does not allow them to have control of or access to space for social relations, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
