  • Translation: We’re the public opinion, “just the facts”, non-advocacy, non-policy part of the Pew universe.
  • In June 1995, 14% of American adults 18+ used the internet. <br /> Just five years later in 2000, when this chart begins, half of adults were online. <br /> Now, eight in ten adults use the internet, including almost six in ten adults 65+. <br />
  • For reference: <br /> Among seniors ages 65-69, 48% are men and 52% are women. After age 75, the population is 39% men, 60% women. <br /> Additionally, among all seniors ages 65 and older, women make up 62% of those without a high school education; men make up a majority (54%) of college graduates. <br /> Women make up 65% of those living in households earning less than $30,000 per year; Men make up 61% of those living in households earning at least $75,000 annually. <br />

  • 29% of seniors are living with a disability, handicap, or chronic disease that keeps them from participating fully in work, school, housework, or other activities.
  • Over three-quarters of seniors (77%) own a cell phone. <br /> However, as of January 2014, as many (or more) seniors own a tablet computer (25%) as a smartphone (18/22%, depending on survey)
  • Among seniors, internet users (79%) are far more likely than non-internet users (48%) to say that people without internet access are missing out on information. SNS users: 85% / Smartphone users: 86% / All 65+: 66%
  • Just 18% of seniors say they would feel comfortable learning to use a new device (like a smartphone or tablet) on their own.
