What is homelessness?

Homelessness Australia uses the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) statistical definition of homelessness. The ABS statistical definition states that when a person does not have suitable accommodation alternatives they are considered homeless if their current living arrangement:

  • is in a dwelling that is inadequate; or
  • has no tenure, or if their initial tenure is short and not
    extendable; or
  • does not allow them to have control of, and access to
    space for social relations.

People who are experiencing homelessness are usually
staying in the following areas:

  • Improvised dwellings, tents or sleeping out
  • Supported accommodation for the homeless
