Months and months ago, someone asked me for my source for a statistic on the 
growth of communities governed by associations. It is from the 2013 Community 
Association Fact Book.

"It's been said that the growth of community associations (condominiums, 
planned communities and cooperatives) offers the greatest single extension of 
homeownership opportunities since the housing reforms of the New Deal and the 
provision of GI Bill benefits just after World War II. The Community 
Associations Institute estimates that in 1970 there were 10,000 community 
associations nationwide. In 2013, there are 328,500 associations housing more 
than 65 million Americans. From its inception, CAI has grown along with 
association housing, along with the homeowners and along with association 
professionals -- to foster better communities based on fostering harmony, 
transparency and sustainability."

The Fact Book quotes statistics from the 2013 National and State Statistical 
Review on their website.

CAI has an incredible number of resources.
