Statistics About Internet Use

From the Pew Internet & American Life Project, lots ‘O surveys. Pointed to via a post to uwebd.

“The Pew Internet & American Life Project will create and fund original, academic-quality research that explores the impact of the Internet on children, families, communities, the work place, schools, health care and civic/political life. The Project aims to be an authoritative source for timely information on the Internet’s growth and societal impact, through research that is scrupulously impartial.”

Sounds respectable to me.

The major findings from a survey concerning the use of the Internet for research to support major life decisions is quite interesting.

“36% of the Internet users who chose a school or college for themselves or their children say their use of the Internet played a crucial/important role.”
