In Greater Paris, one homeless person in two has never had their own home
In Greater Paris, one homeless person in two has never had their own home, as opposed to 36% of those in other major urban centres with more than 200,000 inhabitants.
Family separations are the principal cause of loss of housing for those who have already had a home. Half the number of homeless people in Greater Paris are not looking for housing.
Insecurity plays a major role in slowing up the process. Women try more often than men to get housed, above all if they have children with them. Their attempts are very rarely successful in Greater Paris: only one homeless person in ten has been offered housing.
Study carried out in partnership with the Insee Ile-de-France
