<p>NCBA's data set is gleaned from the University of Wisconsin's 2009 report <a href="http://reic.uwcc.wisc.edu/">Research on the Economic Impact of Cooperatives</a>, which identified 29,284 cooperatives in the U.S. economy. We plan to import the data set to find.coop early in the coming year.<span>    </span></p>
