Census Bureau Report States Internet Use Up, but So Is User Concern

The report released by the Census Bureau includes some interesting information on the lowest internet usage Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisiana and the highest usage rates within Alaska, New Hampshire and Colorado.

I can see that the warmer states have a low internet usage and colder climate states have a higher usage.

But the education, income, and poverty rates clearly play into the statistics as well.

In terms of the role that sex plays in using the internet, women are slightly more likely than men to use a computer at home and this is a reverse of a historical trend.

Internet use is still primarily done at work (56% of working adults) versus the home which is keeping an artificial ceiling on what is truly possible.

Then 42% of workplaces incorporate the internet into their daily activities.
