Nationally, 19% of the homeless were in SAAP accommodation on census night in 2006, but in South Australia the figure was 26%. Sixty-six per cent of the homeless in South Australia were aged 34 or younger compared with the national figure of 58%. There are eight state and territory reports on the homeless based on information collected from the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2006 Census. The reports include statistics on accommodation types, age, sex, Indigenous identification and geographical distribution.
