Rough sleeping has been increasing since the 2008 recession

Truthfullness 3 / 5

Fact checked by: fullfact


The way the government measures rough sleeping changed in 2010 so you can’t say it’s been increasing since 2008. But since 2010 it’s fair to say rough sleeping has increased.

Do you agree this deserves 3 / 5 for truthfullness?
