American senior citizens are gradually finding their way to the Internet, but lagging the overall population in online usage, a survey showed Thursday.
The Pew Research Center report showed that 59 percent of US adults age 65 or older use the Internet -- up six percentage points from a year ago. And 47 percent have a high-speed broadband connection at home.
But that leaves 41 percent who do not use the Internet at all, and 53 percent lacking high-speed connectivity, the researchers found. For the overall US population, Pew estimates 86 percent use the Internet.
