6/12: Running Wild with Websites?

Less than one-fifth of Americans say they are going wild with their own personal websites.  Just 18% report they’ve created their own web page compared with 82% who have not.



So, just who are going digital?  More men than women maintain their own websites — 21% to 14%, respectively.  Not surprisingly, younger Americans and more affluent residents nationwide beat out their counterparts on this question.  21% of those younger than 45 have launched their own online page compared with 15% of those 45 and above.  22% of Americans with an annual household income of $50,000 or more are likely to have a website.  This compares with 16% who earn less than $50,000.  Region does come into play as well.  More people in the Northeast and West have their own URL than do those in the Midwest and South.
