The data from the various education and income groups further confirms the slowed growth of the online population in 2002.
Of particular note was a decline in the number of people with less than a high school degree who are online.
In August of this year, 65% of men and 61% of women were online.
Since there are more women in the United States than men, this meant that the Internet population was about 51% female.

Similarly, the 50- to 64-year olds stabilized at exactly 55% for all but one survey period during 2002 but then grew to 59% in our August survey.Whites predominated in the mid-1990s, minorities saw high growth rates at the turn of the century, and the growth in all groups slowed in 2002.Whites hit 63% for Internet penetration in January 2002, dipped somewhat in the months after that, then hit 64% in August 2003.The least wired age group, those 65 and over, has come online slowly but steadily since 2000, and showed only negligible growth over the course of 20 — 20% of seniors were online in December 2002, and 22% reported use of the Internet in our August 2003 survey.Other demographics confirm the slowdown in Internet growth.
