Computers

Computer penetration is indexed with one variable:
Percentage of households with either desktop or laptop computer (excludes other devices such as cell phones, personal digital assistants, or TVs)

The penetration of technology is a subject that is not without controversy, and appreciating the results of the WMLN study requires knowledge of the issues. Miller and McKenna (2016) outline the history of digital literacy and discuss its implications for the future.
