Every three years, Wilder Research conducts a statewide survey of people who are homeless or living in temporary housing programs. The study includes counts and estimates of the number of people who are homeless and face-to-face interviews with homeless people throughout Minnesota to better understand the causes and circumstances of homelessness. Detailed data tables by region are available at the Minnesota Homeless Study website.
Wilder Research operates as an independent research unit of the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation. As a nonprofit research and evaluation group, we work with nonprofits, foundations, and government entities to inform decisions and improve lives.
