"This study was undertaken by the Research, Analysis and Information Team in Metropolitan Division to inform planning for accommodation and support services to Aboriginal young people in metropolitan Adelaide who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The overall aim was to develop a better understanding of Aboriginal youth homelessness and particularly the ways in which it is both similar to, and different from, non-indigenous youth homelessness. The study consisted of three components: 1. A literature review 2. In-depth interviews with 19 homeless Aboriginal youth (aged 11- 20) 3. Examination of nine case studies of homeless Aboriginal youth. Previous research in relation to youth homelessness has almost exclusively taken place with regards to non-indigenous youth; and this is the first study of its kind in Australia" -- p.5.
