College Students' Internet Uses

What do members of the most wired generation do online? This project is based on data collected in February and March, 2006 at the University of Illinois, Chicago (UIC).

A paper-and-pencil survey was administered in sections of the one course on campus that is required of all students. This means that there is no selection bias in the course enrollment and students are representative of the general UIC student body. Over 1,300 students filled out the survey yielding an 82% response rate.
