This study analyses the pathways between housing and homelessness of young income support recipients in Helsinki. The data used is unique
in the Nordic and European context. The data covers all young (19-27 years at
the end of 2008) single people in Helsinki, who received income support for
at least one month during 2008-2010. Subgroups of the homeless young
adults, based on the duration of homelessness and the stability of the
homeless pathway, were compared against several psycho-social factors. The
study adds to knowledge about young homeless recipients of income support
in Helsinki, and participates in the academic debate about methods for quantifying homelessness.
