From hotels and airports to restaurants and coffee shops, we rely on the Internet to make reservations quickly and take food orders efficiently. Across college campuses and in schools, youth of all ages are glued to their devices, offering advanced educational tools. With increasing interest, even once-reluctant seniors have discovered the benefits of staying connected to their families—and the world—online.

Nearly 100 National Surveys During 15 Years

The Pew Research Center has provided undeniable evidence of this ever-growing activity in “Americans’ Internet Access:
 2000-2015.”  Since 2000, Pew Research has conducted 97 national surveys of adults, documenting how the Internet has become an integral part of daily life. Here are some of the current findings:

  • A total of 84% of American adults use the Internet.
  • Today, men and women are equally likely to be Internet users, a trend that has not wavered throughout the 15 years these surveys have been conducted.
  • The proportion of young adults ages 18-29 who use the Internet has always outpaced overall adoption levels among older groups.  In 2000, 70% of young adults used the Internet and that number has steadily grown to 96% today.
  • By 2000, 54% of men were Internet users compared with half of women. This small gap continued to shrink gradually until 2008, when 74% of men and 73% of women were identified as Internet users. Today, 85% of men and 84% of women report online activity.
  • In 2000, 14% of seniors used the Internet in 2000, whereas 58% do today. By 2012, more than half of those ages 65 and older reported using the Internet. Seniors have the greatest rate of change since 2000.
