Developing a Methodology for Tracking Homeless People Over the Long Term
Collecting useful data on the causes of homelessness depends on the ability to interview homeless people over the long term, to determine why some escape homelessness and others do not. A major challenge is tracking these people, due to their inherent transient nature. This research attempted to develop a tracking methodology, but was still able to follow only 63% of the Ottawa study participants. Numerous recommendations for improving the methodology were also made.
