Claudia what are you going to do with these stats, I am here in Chicago putting together a CDC led project and I intend to use this kind of information to convince bankers and government types of the applicablity of this kind of housing strategy for a mix income urban redevelopment project.

Thanks for the assistance... -- MFN
