Among young people 12 to 23 years old, those in the 14-to-17 age group were most likely to use the Internet in 1998. Over half of 14- to 17-year-olds accessed the Internet that year.
Among 14- to 15-year-olds, 51 percent used the Internet in 1998, while for 16- to 17-year-olds, the percentage was about the same—52 percent. For others between 12 and 23, Internet use ranged from 42 percent of those in the 22-to-23 age group to 48 percent of those in the 18-to-19 age group.
These data are from a December 1998 supplement to the Current Population Survey. See "Internet use: Here, there, and everywhere," by Terry Schau, Occupational Outlook Quarterly, Winter 2000-01, for more information.
