Project Description

This project aims to highlight the homelessness challenges being faced in Western Australia (WA), and identify some viable approaches to improving the situation. In addition, we are specifically focusing on Fremantle and how the situation with homelessness in that area may be addressed for maximum benefit.

Using open data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, our main objectives are to determine where these hotspots are, which demographics of people are most affected, and propose possible interventions to reduce the amount of homelessness folks in those areas.

Data Story

Data shows that certain parts of WA have a high percentage of homeless people in various demographics.

In addition, data has also yielded evidence that there are some contributing factors that have a direct relationship to the rate of homelessness, the individuals' circumstances, and in turn the a has impacts of homelessness on the different demographics that the data has identified.
