Homelessness in Scotland: 2018-19 – Equalities Breakdowns
This bulletin provides information about homelessness in Scotland, with a focus on the equalities characteristics of homeless applicants. Specifically this bulletin looks at homelessness in Scotland with respect to Age, Gender and Ethnicity, as these variables are currently available in our Homelessness data collections. We intend to review our collections and consider whether to include other equalities characteristics in future.
The bulletin is based on data collected from local authorities through the HL1 case-level homelessness applications data collection and the HL3 case-level temporary accommodation return. It covers the period from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019, with some additional analysis of trends over the last decade.
