This summer I went on a trip to the Netherlands visiting cities of various sizes throughout the country from south east to north west. The main stops (for which my question is meant) were Eindhoven, s-Hertogenbosch, Dordrecht, Rotterdam, Den Haag, Leiden.
At some point during this trip I noticed that the only beggar (i.e. homeless person in shabby clothes asking for money, no offense!) I ever saw was a woman in Eindhoven. Coming from Germany I am used to being asked for some money in pretty much every city.
I looked up the ratio of homeless people of both countries on wikipedia and it states 0.42% for Germany and 0.19% for the Netherlands. So as a matter of fact, there are homeless people in the Netherlands, but why did I not see them in any of the cities listed above?
