       NOTE:  Data refer to computer use on the sole or primary job.  The percentage of persons who used computers
     for various activities may exceed 100 percent as persons may report multiple activities.  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.
