Gender and Homelessness.
Hagen, Jan L.
Social Work, v32 n4 p312-16 Jul-Aug 1987
Examines a homeless population (N=227) requesting social services including similarities and differences for women and men. Findings indicated women and men experienced homelessness somewhat differently. Women were more likely to become homeless because of eviction and domestic violence, whereas men were more likely to become homeless as a result of unemployment, alcohol abuse, and jail release.
