We provide an update of the Community Advantage Panel Survey (CAPS) data
collection activities that occurred in 2014.

We first summarize the CAPS data collection progress and then consider attrition concerns and the extent to which 2014 survey completers are representative of baseline respondents and other Self-Help Community Advantage Program (CAP) borrowers. We find that males continue to be the most likely to attrit from the survey.

Furthermore, for the owners sample, we find that this gender effect is most pronounced for blacks. Race also remains a significant predictor of attrition for the renters sample, with Hispanics significantly less likely to respond.
