It is listed on the Publications on Cohousing page (#41) ( http://www.mtn.org/~fholson/coho-lib.htm ) that I just mentioned in a different message: AUTHOR: Murnane, Mary K., 1964- TITLE: Detached desires : Austin Habitat for Humanity and the creation of a cohousing community / Thesis (M.S. in C.R.P.)--University of Texas at Austin, 1993.

My guess is that most Americans of any income reject cohousing ideals. Cohousing (in its current form with all the difficulties) appeals to a minority of the population. I realize you are just summarizing the conclusion as you remember it but I wonder if a significantly higher percentage of low-income folks than higher income are not attracted to cohousing.
