Abstract/Summary In July 2009, the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare published eight research monographs by Chamberlain and MacKenzie on homelessness in each state and territory. These monographs provided information on the age, sex, Indigenous identification and geographical distribution of homeless people in all States on Census night 2006. The New South Wales report is attached to illustrate the approach. The research was a cooperative venture between Professor Chris Chamberlain (RMIT University), Associate Professor David MacKenzie (Swinburne University), the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW). Chamberlain and Mackenzie undertook the analysis of the 2006 Census data. They also used information on people accessing the Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP) and data from the third National Census of Homeless School Students. The ABS and the AIHW provided extensive in kind support and technical assistance. The eight monographs provide essential information for all state and territory governments to assist them making policy decisions about the allocation of resources to reduce homelessness. The reports are used in all states and territories.
