Hi all,

According to the 2008 Natl Cohousing Consensus, the distribution for
109 occupied communities was:

Urban: 40%
Small Town: 22%
Rural: 21%
Suburban: 17%

This was presented at the 2008 Natl. Cohousing Conference and has
also, I believe, been quoted by media. The labels were self-selected
by the people that completed the Cohousing Directory entry forms.
