In Tent City
Include a plug for services
People coming to Melbourne because the homelessness services are better than anywhere else in Oz
An opportunity to change the face of homelessness - Something about culture - There’s a community -We’re not drug addicts, we’re not abusive, we’re just real humans who fall in to this situation
A story of the missing data - What’s not showing up in the data?
Homelessness stats reported in the media vs what’s in the government data
Something about homelessness and anonymity.
We took a broad sample of datasets, including
ABS Census 2016 (Estimating Homelessness)
AskIzzy Open Data Portal (Service Supply / Demand, Demographics)
AIHW Open Data (Number of months homeless, Specialist Homelessness Services Collection data cubes)
And produced a set of statistics, visualisations and data stories that challenge stereotypes about homelessness.
