Who's Not Online?

Nearly 24 million households in the United States--one in five--do not use the Internet. Among them, the 58 percent majority say they do not need the Internet, another 18 percent say it is too expensive, and 16 percent say their computer is inadequate.  

Perhaps most telling, 66 percent of these householders are aged 55 or older, 64 percent are not in the labor force, and 85 percent do not have children at home.
