Public Opinion

Providing fact-based, actionable research to policy makers and service providers requires a mature understanding of the sphere of public opinion in which policy is made. While child and family homelessness tend to exist beneath the surface, detailed measurement of the public’s attitude toward these issues can illuminate those forces that enable or constrain decisions about policy and resource allocation.

ICPH analyzes and reports on attitudes toward homelessness and related areas of public policy by conducting regular surveys in cities across the country. From the results of these surveys we derive informed analysis of how popular perceptions might impact policies designed to alleviate family homelessness.
