San Francisco revision:
The The first quarter 2002 San Francisco Regional Perspectives article has been revised to correct labeling
errors in Table 1. Column two, which was titled “Assets of CCLs,” should read “Assets of Community
Institutions.” Column three, which was labeled “Number of CCLs,” should read “Number of
Community Institutions.” These changes do not affect the authors’ analysis or conclusions.
