Discussion topics will include: enhancing communication, building community, strengthening relationships, simplifying procedures, increasing security and reducing operational costs.
Use of the Internet Based on 2001 US Census and the Pew Internet and American Life Project* : In 2003, 63% of all U.S. adults; 64% of whites, 62% of English speaking Hispanics, and 51% of African Americans used the Internet Usage by age: Over 65 – 22% 50 to 64 – 55% 30 to 49 – 73% 18 to 29 – 83%
Use of the Internet 80% of users expect to find reliable information online (news, health, e-commerce and government) From 2000 to 2003, those seeking health information online grew 59%, those seeking religious information grew 94%, those using government sites grew 56%, those doing research or training grew 45%, and those purchasing online grew 63%. A majority of users now go online first for government services or programs, twice the rate of those who use the telephone. The greatest predictor of Internet use is income, then educational level. * National eXtension Initiative http://intranet.extension.org/
