How to count the homeless


Abstract:

The aim of Counting the Homeless, Prague 2004 was the most exact estimation of the number of homeless people trying to survive the winter in the city. A definition of the term of homelessness, was made by FEANTSA. The project is a pilot study. Until now, the least credible method of detecting the number of the homeless is used in the Czech Republic – based only on personal experience and their estimations, likewise in Portugal or Greece. The article introduces into the European context of homelessness and its quantification. With a little overseas excursion, approaches a methodology of the project, its preparation and realisation. It covers an evaluation and publicity of the results, without substituting a role of the final report. The article reflects the author’s own professional experience at the end.
