From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

It is estimated that 150 million people are homeless worldwide.[1] Habitat for Humanity estimated in 2015 that 1.6 billion people around the world live in "inadequate shelter".[2]

This is a list of countries (not all 195) by the homeless population present on any given night. Different countries often use different definitions of homelessness, making direct comparisons of numbers complicated.[3]
