Mapping Unsheltered Homelessness in Indianapolis

Services: Survey analysis, Survey design

Research Area: Housing & Community Development

On Wednesday, January 25, 2017, students from IUPUI — with the help of researchers from the IU Public Policy Institute and the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention (CHIP) — conducted a survey and count of Indianapolis residents who were experiencing homelessness at that time. Though the majority of individuals by this count were staying in some type of emergency shelter or transitional housing, the count identified 124 unsheltered individuals. This report analyzes the distribution of unsheltered homeless people in Indianapolis and their proximities to shelter, transportation, and other resources throughout the city.
