While internet use and information technology is expanding, the digital divide is widening for some groups in California. This benchmark survey of Californians examines their access to information technology, including computer ownership, access to the Internet, and the use of mobile devices. The survey also looks at perceptions of the role of government in areas such as Internet regulation and broadband access and availability. The survey details results in the five major regions in California, by race and ethnicity, between urban and rural communities, and among socioeconomic and political groups. Lunch will be provided.
