Abstract

This paper examines the location choices of homeless people in Osaka City, and .nds them concentrated because of homeless networks. The paper also shows that different types of homeless networks operate in two different homeless groups: (1) peer networks that provide a social tie inside homeless communities are observed in groups that had not had work experience in the day labor market; (2) homed networks that provide a social tie outside homeless communities affect location choice in the expected way, although the effect is statistically insigni.cant in groups that had worked in the day labor market.
