The SARs research project on which this book is based was funded by ESRC research grant No. 235974. Access to the SARs files was provided by courtesy of the ESRC/JISC/DENI programme which arranged for the creation of these valuable research datasets, which remain Crown Copyright. I am indebted to the Census Microdata Unit at Manchester University for help with accessing the SARs and for providing documentation on the files. I thank the Computing Service staff both at Manchester and at the LSE for assistance with processing these enormous datasets. I thank the OECD for supplying unpublished comparative analyses on part-time work used in Fig. 2.
