Minnesota Homeless Study

Understanding homelessness so we can eliminate it

Body

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.

Section

An estimated 19,600 Minnesotans experienced homelessness on any given night in 2018.

Understanding who is homeless in Minnesota

On October 25, 2018, the Minnesota Homeless Study counted 11,371 people experiencing homelessness across the state. Homelessness statewide increased by 10% between 2015 and 2018.

Homelessness among specific populations

As part of the effort to understand who is affected by homelessness in Minnesota, we analyze data from subsets of the overall population.
