I do not have Diana Leafe Christian's books with me at work, but if memory serves, intentional communities in general had a 90% failure rate and cohousing development had a 75% failure rate. A quick search produced this http://blogs.salon.com/0002007/2005/01/01.html which supports these figures. However, I agree that the Great Recession was not helpful to forming group. -Robert Heinich Eno Commons Cohousing Durham, NC http://www.enocommons.org where we just had our retreat at nearby Eno River State Park On Tue, May 4, 2010 at 11:50 AM, Bob Morrison <RHmorrison [at] aol.com> wrote: > > In a recent posting, Craig wrote that Diana Leafe Christian wrote that > only 25% of forming groups succeed thru completion of the project.
