Access to High Speed Internet in Washington

A very interesting article from the US Census Bureau.  It’s from their latest report from the American Community Survey.  The report released today, Computer and Internet Use in the United States: 2013,includes analysis of household computer ownership and Internet use by age, sex, race and Hispanic origin, income and education, and covers areas of the country with populations larger than 65,000.

“Many states had metros with consistently high or low computer and high-speed Internet use, but other states were notable for having a mix of both high and low areas within their borders, often very near one another,” said Thom File, a Census Bureau sociologist. “One clear example of this is seen in Washington. State level results show high percentages of both computer and high-speed Internet use, but when we look at the state’s individual metro areas, a more nuanced picture emerges.”
