The rise of sophisticated mobile devices and high-speed wireless networks is transforming the Internet and how our society interacts with it. Americans are rapidly embracing mobile technologies and the opportunities they create. This book examines data from the 2012 Current Population Survey (CPS) describing Americans’ use of computers and the Internet.

Data from this survey depict the accelerating popularity of mobile phone-based Internet use across demographic groups. The book also reveals the explosion in mobile Internet use accompanied by narrowing but persistent disparities in computer ownership and Internet use overall. This book’s insights will allow policymakers, in cooperation with private partners, to make decisions that will improve America’s productivity, ingenuity, world competitiveness, and standard of living.
