Abstract

This data collection is comprised of responses from two sets of survey questionnaires, the basic Current Population Survey (CPS) and a survey on the topic of Internet and Computer Use in the United States, which was administered as a supplement to the August 2000 CPS.

The CPS, administered monthly, is a labor force survey providing current estimates of the economic status and activities of the population of the United States, for the week prior to the survey. Specifically, the CPS provides estimates of total employment (both farm and nonfarm), nonfarm self- employed persons, domestics, and unpaid helpers in nonfarm family enterprises, wage and salaried employees, and estimates of total unemployment.

The August 2000 supplement survey queried respondents on whether there was a personal computer and/or laptop in the household, how many computers or laptops were in the household, if anyone in the household used the Internet, who was the Internet service provider, how the Internet was accessed (i.e., dial-up, DSL, or cable modem), and where the Internet was regularly accessed (e.g, from home, work, community center, library, or religious facility). Other Internet specific questions included concerns about providing personal information over the Internet, if household members used the Internet to access e-mail, news, weather, play games, take on-line courses, shop, pay bills, look for a job, or search for information about products and services (like health, government, or financial services).

Demographic variables include age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, marital status, veteran status, educational attainment, occupation, and income.
