This briefing of PPIC's Californians and Information Technology survey explores information technology and Internet access in the state, computer ownership, mobile device use, and Internet use by parents to connect to their children’s schools. The survey also looks at Californians’ perceptions of the role of government in improving the access and availability of broadband technology, among several other related topics. It details results from five major regions, by race and ethnicity, between urban and rural communities, and among socioeconomic and political groups; it is the second in a five-year series of annual PPIC surveys on California information technology issues and is supported by the California Emerging Technology Fund and ZeroDivide.
Dean Bonner is a research associate at PPIC whose expertise includes public opinion and survey research; Latino and African American political attitudes; political trust; and political participation and voting behavior.
