       NOTE:  Data refer to computer or Internet use on the sole or primary job.  Internet use
     at work refers to either connecting to the Internet or using e-mail.  Estimates for the
     above race groups (white, black or African American, and Asian) do not sum to totals
     because data are not presented for all races.  In addition, persons whose ethnicity is
     Hispanic or Latino may be of any race and, therefore, are classified by ethnicity as well
     as by race.
