The Best British Poetry 2015 was edited by Emily Berry, and, at 71 poems, is the most generous in the series so far. For the third year running (2013 and 2014), here is the distribution of poems in the anthology by original source magazine:

For Every Year
Ink, Sweat & Tears
Long Poem Magazine
Tears in the Fence
The Dark Horse
The Learned Pig
The Poetry Paper
With poems from 37 different magazines, The Best British Poetry 2015 has the most breadth of the series so far.
I’m afraid I’ve continued to guess at categorising contributors as ‘male’ or ‘female’. This is definitely incorrect, and not something I plan to continue if the anthology series continues and if I continue to post these numbers. However, it’s worth giving Emily Berry credit for apparently avoiding a majority male contributors, and it’d be a shame to not acknowledge that.
