Stability and Change in the Digital Terrain : The U . S . 2000 - 2005

Abstract

We explore how use of the internet varies and is changing within the U.S. population. We do so through a social demographic approach that identifies both stability and change in the digital terrain, the dramatic differential use of the internet across socio-demographic categories. Our study focuses on a period of dramatic increase (2000-2005) and uses repeated crosssectional national surveys that were collected under the auspices of the Pew Internet & American Life Project. We will also speculate on the ways that internet use reinforces some existing social structures as well as changes others.
