ABOUT THIS RELEASE
This publication contains a selection of results based on the February and May Household Use of Information Technology Surveys conducted in 1996 and 1998. The surveys have been combined to increase the effective sample size to a total of approximately 6,600 households. Analysis based on the 6,600 observations has produced much more reliable results than any of the individual surveys especially where analysis is focused on small target groups. In particular, this publication contains statistics classified by State and presents some statistics about children’s use of computers and the Internet.
