Jackson, Linda A.; Ervin, Kelly S.; Gardner, Philip D.; Schmitt, Neal
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v44 n5-6 p363-79 Mar 2001
Examined factors responsible for gender differences in Internet use. Surveys of college students indicated that women and men used the Internet equally but differently, with men connecting more frequently to the Web than women and women using e-mail more than men. Computer self-efficacy, loneliness, and depression accounted in part for gender differences, but gender had a direct effect on computer use after these factors were considered. (SM)
