The Review's annual compilation of statistical data relies on substantial help and guidance from civil servants at the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC), the Department for Work and Pensions, the Treasury, the Welsh Government, the Scottish Government, the Northern Ireland Executive, the Office for National Statistics and elsewhere. Assistance is also provided by UK Finance, Homes England, the Greater London Authority, the Regulator of Social Housing and the Northern Ireland Housing Executive. Their enormous help in compiling each year's Review is warmly acknowledged. The Review now also features comparative international statistics provided by Eurostat and the European Mortgage Federation.

We are particularly grateful for the collective help from this year's sponsors (see cover), without whom the 30th edition (and future editions) would not be published, especially since DLUHC is no longer able to make a financial contribution (although it provides important 'support in kind'). It is particularly pleasing that among the sponsors are the Scottish Government, Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Housing Executive.

The University of Glasgow has formal editorial responsibility for the Review, led in this by Professor Mark Stephens. The Review is published by the Chartered Institute of Housing with John Perry as production editor. Jeremy Spencer (graphic designer) is thanked for his patience and creative contribution to its design and production.

While every attempt has been made to check the figures included in the Review and the construction put upon them, the final responsibility for any errors, omissions or misjudgments is that of the authors. The views expressed in the Review are also the responsibility of the respective authors.
