50 Percent of Older Adults are on the Internet: Pew

In another of the excellent surveys from the  Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, data show that more than 50 percent of older adults,  65 and over, use the Internet or e-mail.  The survey was conducted via telephone interviews during the month of April 2012.

This survey is significant because the older adult age group had experienced almost no digital access growth during the last few years. Now that’s changed.

Ownership of cell phones has also increased in the over 65  demographic group. Sixth-nine percent of older adults in the survey not using a mobile phone.
