Sample Design Options for a Survey of Homeless in Canada

Statistics Canada (STC) has been approached by Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC) to look into the feasibility of conducting a survey of homelessness in several Canadian cities. The primary objective of this survey would be to obtain accurate counts of the numbers of homeless persons. Initially the survey is planned to get a single count, but the survey may become regular, perhaps being conducted more than once per year to explore seasonal patterns of homelessness.
