The homeless in the Parisian conurbation: a fast growing population

The homeless in the Parisian conurbation: a fast growing population
At the beginning of 2012 28,800 homeless French adults were counted in the Parisian conurbation, marking an increase of 84% since 2001.
The majority of this section of the population, made up of young, foreign men, remained , on average, with no fixed abode for an average of 9 months during which for  1.7 months they had no shelter whatsoever.
However, since 2001, it has aged and includes an increasing number of women. Half of the homeless use the public services, 40% occupy hotel rooms or accommodation provided by associations, the others have no shelter. Since 2001, in response to the rising urgency to address the need for emergency accommodation, the number of available hotel rooms has risen greatly, the rest of available services remaining relatively stable.
Study carried out in partnership with the INSEE Ile-de-France
