Internet use at home and at work

Workplace internet users tend to either use the internet every day or not at all. A large majority of the population can be found at either end of the spectrum – using the internet at work every day (60%) or never (28%). By contrast, few (5%) use the internet just once every few days at work and only 6% use it occasionally, but even less often than that. Americans are also significantly more likely to use the internet “constantly” at work than at home. At work, 27% of employed online Americans use the internet constantly. In comparison, just 14% of online Americans say they constantly use the internet at home.
