Pew Research Center Studies Older Americans' Internet Usage

Pew Research Center’s Internet & Technology division rolled out a new report, “Tech Adoption Climbs Among Older Adults.” It finds that 42% of Americans age 65 and older own smartphones, up from 18% in 2013; 67% use the internet; and about half have broadband at home. Usage varies depending on factors such as age (44% of Americans age 80 and older go online), income level, and education level. About one-third have “little to no confidence in their ability to use electronic devices to perform online tasks,” and 48% say they need help setting up a device and learning how to use it.

For more information, read the report’s summary.
