I chose to write about computer and internet use for individuals 3 years and older in the United States.
The census website provided a detailed data about computer and internet use in the United States by looking at different factors such as age, race, sex, income, region, and education. This data set provided information regarding computer and internet use in 2012.
The data set, Computer and Internet Access in the United States: 2012, will enhance my reporting because it looks at different factors and provide rote numbers and percentages for each factor.
The data is providing a detailed report regarding computer and internet access which will help me backup my blog promise.

Hello Safa, your topic was very interesting for me as an educator. As an educator, we are always trying to find new ways to incorporate technology into our lesson. If we use it in class then we don’t have a problem because we can use the library if we need too. However, if we want to have them use the internet/technology for homework we have to be careful because not everyone has access to a computer/internet at home.
After reading your blog and looking at the data set I was surprised by the results. Only 70% of our homes in Michigan have the internet access, but that does not mean they have a computer. I knew that this was a problem but never realized how bad. Yes, only 20% of Michigan does not have internet access but that is about 2,000 people. In reality that is a lot!
