Shopping online for any number of products and services is quite ubiquitous, but some individuals are still concerned about the security of performing online transactions. This 32-page report released in February 2008 by the Pew Internet & American Life Project looks at what Americans think about online shopping. Authored by John B. Horrigan, the report is based on surveys conducted in September 2007. The report notes that while 78% of Americans find that shopping online is convenient, 75% of them also remarked that they do not like sending personal or credit card information over the Internet. Visitors can read the report summary offered here, or they can make their way through all three chapters, which include sections on trends in online shopping and low-income Internet users.
