NSW Census Data and HNSW Factsheets

There were approx. 37,000 people experiencing homelessness in NSW on the night of the 2016 Census.  This was an increase of 37% and far higher than the national increase of 14%.

In response to these statistics, Homelessness NSW prepared these resources to assist with understanding homelessness in Australia. Perfect for journalists, researchers or those wanting to know more in-depth details, these infographics include analysis of cohorts from rough sleeping to older people to a local government analysis.
