2009 San Jose Homeless Youth Census and Survey

Some communities in the US conducted specialized counts of their homeless youth populations in 2009.  The City of San Jose, in addition to performing an afternoon street youth count, conducted an in-depth, 28-question survey of 114 youth between the ages of 13-22 years. The survey found, among other things, that a dispute with family or friends was the most common reason for youth homelessness; job loss was most common reason among San Jose adults.
