Rough Sleeping Counts and Census 2016


A number of Rough Sleeping Counts will take place on the night of the Census nationally (April 24th 2016).


The Dublin Region Homeless Executive (DRHE) is responsible for the delivery of rough sleeping counts in Dublin. The DRHE has developed an extensive methodological approach that is tried and tested and that has succeeded in the delivery of consecutive rough sleeper counts in Dublin each spring and winter since 2007.


DRHE have advised each local authority outside Dublin on the agreed methodology and process required to ensure a common approach to enumeration is delivered across these local authorities and have issued detailed guidance on same. DRHE continues to support these local authorities in their preparation ahead of Census night.


CSO staff will participate in the rough sleeping counts in Dublin and Cork as volunteers.

Dedicated CSO enumerators are working with the DRHE on enumerating families who are experiencing homelessness.  To assist, DRHE has met all relevant state-funded Homeless Action Teams that work to support families and has briefed them on how to complete the census form and how to offer assistance as required in the successful and full completion of same.
