Public perception of homelessness is accurate.
Public understanding of homelessness means effectively communicating and improving the understanding of the root causes and solutions to homelessness for non-experts. It may also include raising awareness of current data limitations, the evidence landscape and the implications of those factors.
These indicators are under development, and we’re exploring potential data sources for inclusion in the next version of the framework. We are exploring the possibility of adding questions to an ONS survey to measure people’s understanding of homelessness and its root causes.
