The Pew Internet & American Life Project tracks and analyzes how computers and the Web are changing today’s world. Its work helps the media, academics, policy makers and others to better understand technology’s impact on society.
The project explores the impact of the Internet on families, communities, work and home, daily life, education, health care, and civic and political life. Founded in 1999, it is an initiative of the Pew Research Center, a Pew subsidiary, and is housed in the center’s office in Washington, D.C.
The Pew Internet & American Life Project uses public opinion polling methods, such as nationwide telephone and online surveys, and other research tools to track issues and trends. These surveys are supplemented with research from government agencies, academia and other experts. Project staff observes what people do and how they behave when they are online as well as conducts in-depth interviews with Internet users and industry experts.
The project’s research efforts result in 15 to 20 reports and data memos per year, varying in size and scope. Examples of the project’s groundbreaking studies are: the “digital divide” between rich and poor Americans; the impact of broadband Internet access on users; the influence of the Internet on the American electoral process; and social networking sites used by teenagers.
