The data in this survey offer a unique perspective from low- and moderate-income families with school-age children in the United States. They reveal many of the nuances and complexities of digital life among lower income families today. Because lower-income parents are not usually the focus of studies on technology and learning, this report offers a unique perspective into the varying degrees of connectivity that exist among these families. The goal is to shine a spotlight on an important segment of the U.S. population that too often goes unnoticed as the progress and promise afforded by new technologies are celebrated. The survey was fielded via telephone by SSRS, an independent research company, from April 16, 2015 through June 29, 2015. N = 1,191 parents with at least one 6- to 13-year old child in the home, and with an annual household income at or below $65,000 a year. All results below are percentages. * Indicates less than one-half of one percent, but more than zero. This companion document to the main report provides the Appendix: Questionnaire and Topline Results for the main report entitled: "Opportunity for All? Technology and Learning in Lower-Income Families" (ED574416).
