In 2013, 15% of American adults still aren’t online


According to Pew Research, a record 85 percent of American adults use the internet in 2013. However, 15 percent of adults still don’t go online. At all. Age is one factor — 44 percent of people 65 and older don’t use the internet– but internet usage is also affected by income and education level. The lower the income and education level, the less wired the household. Interestingly, nearly one in four people who identify themselves as Hispanic do not go online. The reason for not logging on? One in three non-users say they’re just not interested.
