Initial observations and counts from the 2018 Minnesota Homeless Study, including the number of people experiencing homelessness by age group, those in formal shelter and those not in a formal shelter, and Twin Cities metro and greater Minnesota.
Every three years, Wilder Research conducts a statewide survey of people experiencing homelessness or living in temporary housing programs. The 2018 study took place on October 25, 2018, and included two components that captured information on that date: 1) face-to-face interviews with people throughout the state who were experiencing homelessness and 2) a count of people experiencing homelessness.

Wilder Research operates as an independent research unit of the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation. As one of the nation’s largest nonprofit research and evaluation groups, we work with nonprofits, foundations, and government entities to inform decisions and improve lives.
