The Foundation for Community Association Research has released the 2014 edition of its acclaimed Community Association Fact Book, an unparalleled compilation of data about common-interest communities.

The resource also includes updated housing data for all 50 states and the District of Columbia, including general housing characteristics; age of residents, household type, disability and place of birth; property values and real estate taxes; and mortgage data—with and without a mortgage by age group and compared to national data.
