The England's Housing Crisis publications are a compendium of key facts and figures on affordability and housing need. They show how house price inflation has far outstripped earnings inflation since Labour was first elected in 1997. They show that there aren't enough affordable homes being built, while affordable housing waiting lists continue to rise. They also show how housing associations are working to reverse the crisis - and how the Government can help to make their work go even further.
