About the Survey
This report is based on the findings of a survey of Americans about their use of the Internet. The results are based on data from telephone interviews conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates between January 29 and February 20, 2002, among a sample of 507 Internet users, 18 and older, who have broadband Internet access. For results based on the total sample, one can say with 95% confidence that the error attributable to sampling and other random effects is plus or minus 4 percentage points. In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting telephone surveys may introduce some error or bias into the findings of opinion polls.
