Topics include demographic characteristics, causes of homelessness, health and illness, the gap between the income of the homeless and the cost of low-income housing, kinship and friendship networks, crime and victimization patterns, and policy alternatives. These topics are examined in relation to the findings from studies which have focused on homelessness in major metropolitan areas. This study is based on a sample of 100 homeless people.
