Internet Usage in the U.S. Tripled in a Decade

In 1997, the first year the U.S. Census Bureau collected data on Internet use, 18 percent of households reported using Internet access at home. A decade later, the 2007 U.S. Census Bureau's data shows that 62 percent of households reported in home Internet usage. While Internet usage has increased, the 2007 Internet and Computer Use Survey results show significant variations regarding usage by differing groups (age, education, and race/origin).
