Distinguishing Homelessness from Poverty: A Comparative Study.
Toro, Paul A.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v63 n2 p280-89 Apr 1995
To distinguish the homeless from the housed poor, 144 adults were randomly sampled from several sites and classified into 3 groups: the currently homeless, the previously homeless, and the never-homeless poor. The homeless group was less likely to be receiving public benefits and more likely to experience substance abuse and violence. (RJM)
