A NATION ONLINE: Internet Use in America
A Nation Online: How Americans Are Expanding Their Use of the Internet provides an insightful look at how Americans are increasing their connectivity to information technologies. We are fortunate to be able to base our findings on the September 2001 U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey – a survey of approximately 57,000 households and more than 137,000 individuals across the United States. As such, the data in this study are among the most broad-based and reliable datasets that have been gathered on Internet, broadband, and computer connectivity.
A Nation Online: How Americans Are Expanding Their Use of the Internet is available in two formats:
- For the convenience of researchers, the charts detailing percentages of U.S. households with a computer and with Internet access are posted separately.
- The Census Bureau’s Survey Instrument and Raw Data is available at http://www.bls.census.gov/cps/computer/computer.htm
