The politics of counting youth homelessness SKU17067

Judith Bessant

This article describes recent changes made to Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates of youth homelessness. It details the policy consequences of the dramatic reduction in the numbers of homeless young people. It also contextualises the change in terms of the contradiction of ‘welfare states’ struggling to legitimate the
social order while economic policy generates social problems which call into question the legitimacy of the social order.
