The Minnesota study of homelessness includes counts of the number of people experiencing homelessness and face-to-face interviews with people who are experiencing homelessness. In addition to individual reports exploring the results, two types of detailed data are available: counts and face-to-face interviews.


Statewide and regional counts of the number of people experiencing homelessness include people staying in emergency and domestic violence shelters, and transitional housing sites on one day in October. These counts were reported by the housing providers. Counts also include people experiencing homelessness found through outreach in non-shelter locations such as encampments, hot meal programs, and other drop-in service locations.

Also available: Detailed data from the face-to-face interviews.
