In the previous post Just Who Are the Students in EDM310 Spring 2011? I reported data from the questionnaires I had you fill out. I also reported the results from the Fall 2010 and Summer 2010 terms.
Today I saw on Twitter a link to the results of a Pew Internet & American Life survey covering similar questions. How does EDM310 compare to national data collected in the United States between August and September 2010?
Conclusion: You are very close to the 18-34 age group for the entire United States!
Percentages are shown in this order EDM310 Spring 2011 and then 18-34 yr olds USA Aug 2010
Own Cell Phone? 92% 95%
Own Laptop? 75% 70%
Own iPod/mp3? 76% 74%
Own iPad? 1% 5%
