e-BEAT Survey Results
A total of six pre-designed regions across the state were surveyed. For each of these regions, a dual-frame sample was employed whereby 75 percent of the respondents were contacted via landline and 25 percent via cellphone. Telephone numbers were dialed a maximum of eight times. The total size of the dataset was 2,420. The following Quick Facts Broadband Series were developed to highlight the results of this survey.

Brief No. 1 -- Internet Use at Home & Elsewhere: How Mississippi Households Stack Up
A November 2011 report released by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) states that over 80% of American households have at least one person in the home that uses the Internet at home or elsewhere. How do Mississippi households stack up relative to the nation? Furthermore, what locations are most popular among Mississippi households when it comes to accessing the Internet? Take a peek at the first in a series of Mississippi Broadband Quick Facts reports to get answers to this and other important Internet-related questions.
Brief No. 2 -- Internet Use at Home & Elsewhere: Does Demography and Geography Matter?
The percent of Mississippi households accessing the Internet at home or elsewhere (such as work, public library, or school) is now approaching 79%. But, broadband use can differ significantly by key demographic and geographic features of households or their members. Check out the second Mississippi Broadband Quick Facts report to learn where major gaps in broadband adoption are most pervasive among Mississippians.
Brief No. 3 -- Internet Services in Mississippi: Cable & DSL Technologies Dominate
Better than 7 of every 10 households (71%) in the U.S. have Internet service at their home, according to recent report by the U.S. Department of Commerce titled Exploring the Digital Nation. A statewide survey completed on more than 2400 households in Mississippi over the May-June 2011 period reveals that broadband adoption by households in Mississippi falls just short of the national figure. Less than 66% of households in the state have some type of Internet service in their homes, 5 percentage points below the national figure. The focus of this brief report is on the two-thirds of the households in the state that access the Internet at home, exploring the technologies that Mississippi households are now using to gain access to the Internet.
