Across Australia, 19% of the homeless were in SAAP accommodation on census night in 2006, but in Western Australia the figure was 11%. There were significantly more people staying temporarily with other households in Western Australia (59% compared with 45% nationally). 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.
