From the looks of things, you can’t always tell if a homeless man is actually a homeless woman.
A study by a team of researchers from the University of Warwick found that many homeless people had been known to behave in ways that were inconsistent with their homelessness status, and in some cases, could be perceived as being homeless by others.
According to the researchers, this was because the homeless men they spoke to were not necessarily homeless women.
They wanted to explore why these men had behaved in ways, they said, that suggested they were homeless.
This was a problem, they noted, because there is a lack of research into the psychology of homelessness.
“Homelessness is a complex issue that is complex and requires a lot of data to be able to understand it,” said Professor Sarah Kipnis.
“However, we have found that, for the most part, the homeless people we spoke to do not have a clear picture of themselves or their situation.”
In some cases there was little to no information about the homeless man.
“This suggests that there may be a gap in understanding about the phenomenon of homelessness in the general population,” Professor Kipniens said.
Professor Kipins said there were two primary sources of information about homeless people, the social services that help them, and the media.
“The media is often inaccurate about the number of homeless people and also the extent to which they are housed,” she said.
“We want to understand what people are doing in their everyday lives and why they are in this situation.”
The researchers said there was also a lack in research into homeless women, as they were not asked to identify themselves.
“There was no research on how many homeless women there are in Australia,” Professor O’Reilly said.
However, she added, “the number of people living in homelessness has been estimated at around 20,000, and estimates are that there are around 500,000 homeless people in Australia”.
Professor O’Kelly agreed.
“What we have is the most comprehensive and best-funded research available to study the phenomenon in homelessness, and it shows that it is a phenomenon that affects both men and women,” he said.
