Report: 'Dramatic' Increase in Latinos Using Internet

Hispanic Business, Posted: Dec 24, 2009

Latinos have surpassed black adults in their use of the Internet and are closing the gap with whites, according to a report released Tuesday by the Pew Hispanic Center. Latino adults' Internet use increased by 10 percentage points from 2006 to 2008, according to a report released Tuesday by the Pew Hispanic Center. The leap for Latinos is "pretty dramatic," according to Gretchen Livingston, senior researcher at the Center. "They're still lagging behind whites, but I was stunned by the increase."

The report found that 64 percent of Latinos used the Internet last year, up from 54 percent in 2006. In comparison, the rate for whites was 76 percent (up from 72 percent in 2006) and for blacks it was 63 percent (up from 61 percent in 2006).
