UC Berkeley and Mather Lifeways conducted a 2016 National Village Survey. My Village and several others in our area are among the 115 operational Villages to complete the survey.
The link below will take you to an overview of results called “2016 National Survey of US Villages". This brief includes statistics about Village characteristics, members, volunteer programs, human resources, and financial resources of Villages (and more!). The 2016 results are compared to a past survey conducted in 2012, so you will see some findings about how the Village movement has changed in the last 4 years.

The researchers also have released a Companion report on Village Coalitions such as WAVE: https://www.matherlifewaysinst
