How many gated communities are there in the US?
It is difficult to determine
It is important to know that a gated community is a form of residential community or housing estate containing strictly controlled entrances for pedestrians, bicycles, and automobiles, and often characterized by a closed perimeter of walls and fences. It is difficult to determine the total number of gate communities in the United States of America because these gates are privately developed. It is important to know that in 1997 there were approximately 30 million gated communities. Keep in mind that most gated communities in the U.S. are unincorporated.
