Title:  Computer and Internet Use by Children and Adolescents in 2001
Description: This report, Computer and Internet Use by Children and Adolescents in 2001, uses data from the September Computer and Internet Use supplement to the 2001 Current Population Survey to examine the use of computers and the Internet by American children and adolescents between the ages of 5 and 17. The report examines the overall rate of use, the ways in which children and teens use the technologies, where the use occurs (home, school, and other locations), and the relationships of these aspects of computer and Internet use to demographic and socioeconomic characteristics such as children’s age and race/ethnicity and their parents’ education and family income.
