Statistics and research series
National rough sleeper count
Information on the estimated number of persons sleeping rough over a two week period and the number of persons observed sleeping rough.
Data for November 2020
As the demand increases for statistics and data to measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to change our data gathering and release practices, focussing efforts on priority analysis and statistics. Our statement explains this further and, in line with guidance from the Office for Statistics Regulation, the decision has been made to suspend the rough sleeper count for November 2020.
