Outreach & Sampling Methods for Youth Counts

3:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Reaching unaccompanied homeless youth in PIT counts isn’t easy. Without good strategies to identify them, unaccompanied homeless youth, or subgroups of youth, could be greatly underrepresented in PIT counts. This webinar will describe more robust approaches to sampling strategies, including ‘snowball sampling,' to build on young people’s social networks to count other homeless youth. It will also describe ways to map out the best locations for reaching homeless youth in street counts, and how to build creative partnerships, such as with law enforcement or social services, to improve outreach.

Presenters: Martha Burt, The Urban Institute; Lauren Dunton, Abt Associates
