We investigated a group of Australians, who lived in extreme poverty, by identifying early life and contemporary disadvantages associated with marginal housing or homelessness. Forty nine marginally housed and 51 homeless participants, who sought emergency relief from Melbourne charities, completed a 25 item questionnaire and a follow-up interview about their personal, social and material circumstances.
