To ensure the 2001 NMHC 50 is as complete and accurate as possible, NMHC staff gathered names of apartment owners and managers from a wide range of sources. A senior officer from each firm was contacted for the information included in the rankings, which are for properties owned or managed on January 1, 2001. Although membership in the National Multi Housing Council is not required for inclusion in the survey, 85% of the firms appearing in this year's rankings are NMHC members. NMHC expresses appreciation to the industry leaders for their participation in this annual effort.

The NMHC 50 tallies rental apartments including rental housing for seniors. Condominiums and cooperatives are excluded, as are hotel rooms, nursing homes, hospital rooms, and mobile homes. Pension fund advisory firms are listed only if they have direct ownership interests (as opposed to interests as fiduciaries) or serve directly as property managers.
