Minnesota Homeless Study
Understanding homelessness so we can eliminate it
The Minnesota Homeless Study, conducted every three years, is a point-in-time study aimed at better understanding the prevalence of homelessness in Minnesota, as well as the circumstances of those experiencing homelessness. The data and analysis from the study equip users with the information they need to identify and address systemic issues, improve programs and policies, and ultimately eliminate homelessness.
The next study will take place October 26, 2023.
An estimated 19,600 Minnesotans experienced homelessness on any given night in 2018.
