Housing and Homelessness
Housing is essential to the health of people and communities.
Wilder Research leads the Minnesota Homeless Study, which provides the most comprehensive data and analysis on the reasons Minnesotans are homeless, and barriers to obtaining and maintaining safe and stable housing. The statewide study is conducted every three years, and provides data, analysis and reporting that helps improve understanding about the prevalence, causes, circumstances and effects of homelessness in Minnesota, and guides actions to eliminate homelessness.

Every three years, Wilder Research and its partners conduct a one-day statewide study to better understand the prevalence of homelessness in Minnesota, as well as the circumstances of those experiencing homelessness. The Minnesota Homeless Study website includes complete results and detailed data designed to help inform policymakers, service providers, and the public working to eliminate homelessness in Minnesota.
