Homelessness pathways – selected Australian research
Scope and purpose
This Appendix provides a selective review of Australian qualitative and quantitative empirical research exploring people’s pathways into, through and out of homelessness. It consequently includes studies that investigate one or more of the following:
The review has three main purposes:
It focuses on those studies that have a longitudinal research design, whether prospective or retrospective. The vast majority of these references date from 2000 onwards; indeed this would have been a very short review had it been conducted even five years ago.
This does not claim to be a comprehensive compendium of existing research. The breadth of relevant material is such that an exhaustive literature search would have been impracticable. Moreover, while several of the projects reviewed were located via searches of international or Australian databases, the majority (particularly the most recent research and more applied policy research and evaluation) was discovered by internet and GOOGLE searches, word of mouth and publications like Parity (the monthly magazine of the Council for Homeless Persons (Victoria)).
A summary table of Australian longitudinal research is included as Appendix C.
