The GSS interactive tools

The aim of this interactive tool is to help you understand:

  • the concepts of homelessness and rough sleeping
  • how statistics for these concepts can and cannot be compared between the four UK countries
  • the different processes a person may go through when seeking support for housing from each country's local authorities
