Telecommunications: Characteristics and Choices of Internet Users

Released February 2001 by the General Accounting Office (GAO), this new report finds that the "digital divide" is shrinking as more Americans gain access to the Internet, but disparities persist. Whites are still more likely than minorities to have Internet access, and wealthier Americans are much more likely to have expensive high-speed connections than those in lower-income brackets. On the positive side, previous usage gaps in gender and geography have notably declined. Users can read the full text of the 64-page report for themselves at the GAO site.
