6842 women and 16,506 men.

strong shift in the increased acceptance and use of the Web by women. The US

Europe. The percent of US users though is still far from the 52% female
48% male composition of the entire US population (1995 Estimated US Census).
- There are still proportionately more males (89.5%) than females (10.5%) in
Europe. This proportion only changed 2% since the Third Survey.

ratios more so reflect the traditional male dominated field of computer hobbyists.
