Homeless person life expectancy

“This will vary greatly depending on whether the person is temporarily or chronically homeless, what facilities are available, whether the person is suffering from any illnesses,…

However, this does not mean there is no concrete data that shows the general figures, and I have read a number of reports on this matter. All reports seem to show figures in the high thirties or low to mid forties.

For example, a report on homelessness in the U.K. shows an average life expectancy of 47 for men and 43 for women.[1] A similar report shows an average life expectancy of only 39 in Canada.[2] This is more than 40 years, or more than half, less than the average life expectancy of the general population.”
