The Cohousing Association of the United States may be able to help. Many 
communities have removed email contacts from the list because of spambots 
(and, alas, because of frequent requests for people to spend hours doing 
the work for researchers with reqewsts not unlike yours). We often have 
further data, plus back issues of our directory, with additional contact 
info. We're in the process of revising the contact list system to prevent 
the abuse and to make it easy for communities to specify who wants to be 
contacted for what.

This is a pretty broad request to just broadcast out there. I'd suggest 
making contact with communities and building the relationship, doing a 
little more legwork so they'll meet you halfway. Visit The Cohousing Co. 
which has extensive files and data. Help organize the existing data so 
that future researchers can do more with less impact on communities. Look 
up Graham Meltzer -- he's done lots of work in this regard.
