Paris - At least 3,552 people are living on the Paris streets, 12% of them are women, according to a census conducted by the Paris City Hall on January 30, whose results were unveiled on Tuesday.
The census carried out in this capital during the 'Night of Solidarity,' an initiative inspired in cities such as New York, Brussels and Athens, revealed that 3,641 people were counted in one night in 2019, up significantly from the 3,035 homeless counted in 2018.
According to municipal solidarity assistant Dominique Versini, the number of homeless people on the streets is marked by the eviction of migrant camps.
Just two days before the census, the authorities had evacuated more than 1000 migrants at Porte d'Aubervilliers, where they spent the night in tents.
According to the report, about 2,629 people were homeless on the Paris streets on January 30 evening, 558 have also been identified in train stations and subways, hospital centers and car parks, and 365 others have been counted in woods, gardens and on the edge of highways.
