Abstract/Summary Journeys Home Research Report No. 5 - Findings from Waves 1-5: Special Topics presents findings from the first five waves of Journeys Home, a longitudinal study investigating homelessness and housing insecurity. Data collection for waves 1 to 5 was conducted between September 2011 and November 2013. More than 84 per cent of the original responding sample from wave 1 also participated in wave 5, an excellent retention rate for a study of this kind. From wave 1 to wave 5, the proportion of people who were homeless declined from 27 per cent to 19 per cent, while the proportion of people in stable housing rose from 47 per cent to 57.9 per cent. Males were more likely to experience homelessness than females, and for longer durations. The report explores five key issues affecting the homeless and people at risk of homelessness in depth s
