census.gov is actually a great resource for this.  Oh it's shutdown right
now and I have a sad.  :(

Of the couple of hackerspace surveys I've seen, I think I recall 40-60% of
members identify themselves as people 25-40 years of age with high income
(>$75K/year).  So, locating in an area with those characteristics is
helpful - but I don't think strictly necessary to ensure good membership

My personal experience is that the offerings of a hackerspace and its
community are what trump price, location, and square footage.
