Measuring Homelessness and Housing Exclusion in Northern Ireland: A test of the ETHOS typology

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This research was undertaken to look at the utility of employing the European Typology of Housing Exclusion and Homelessness (ETHOS) in Northern Ireland. ETHOS is a framework which was developed to encourage measurement of homelessness and housing exclusion in a standardised and comparable way across the European Union (EU). The research aimed to explore how effective ETHOS would be, both as a measure of homelessness and housing exclusion for Northern Ireland itself, and as a means ofcontrasting homelessness policy outcomes in Northern Ireland with those in comparable countries or regions.
The research was designed to complement the development of new strategic responses to homelessness and housing exclusion in Northern Ireland as detailed in the Homelessness Strategy for Northern Ireland: 2012‐2017.
