'A brilliant publication, full of really useful and interesting stuff.' Lord Richard Best
Welcome to the UK Housing Review, which provides a key resource for busy managers and policy-makers across both public and private housing sectors. The Review brings together the most important housing statistics for England (and its regions), Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It features over 200 charts and tables and is a key resource for those interested in housing policy and finance.
Its charts and tables include data about:
- Homelessness and lettings
- Housing investment by councils, housing associations and private investors
- Housing stock and conditions
- Housing characteristics and incomes
- Subsidies, tax relief and benefits
- House prices and market trends
- Public expenditure plans
- Rents and revenue spending
- UK and international economic trends
Since 2003/4 this website has provided much of the content online, with downloadable text charts and data in PDF and Excel.
Print editions of the UK Housing Review offer further articles by leading analysts, and recent editions are available to order at the Chartered Institute of Housing online bookshop.
