Hennepin County: Characteristics and Trends of Those Experiencing Homelessness in Minnesota

The study includes face-to-face interviews with people throughout the state who meet the federal definition of homelessness, as well as a count of people who were homeless on a single night in late October. The most recent study was conducted on October 22, 2015. This fact sheet highlights findings from interviews with people experiencing homelessness in Hennepin County.
