Summary "This study has examined the factors that contribute to homelessness in Australia> it has identified some indicators that are associated with these risk factors; and then used these indicators to identify a 'risk of homelessness' index. This index can be used to identify areas where there is a high risk of homelessness, so policies can be better targeted to these areas. Once an area has been identified using the index, the indicators can pinpoint what risk factors exist in that area which would then allow policies to be better targeted."--page xi
