45 million kids could be online by 2002, study says

Published on .

Almost 10 million children are surfing the Internet, according to ``Children on the Internet,'' a new research report from Find/SVP's Emerging Technologies Research Group and Grunwald Associates. The study, in which 2,000 households were surveyed in the second quarter of 1997, found that 14% of all children under 18 are currently online, making kids the fastest growing segments of new Internet users. The study also found that nearly one-half of all 35.3 million U.S. family households have kids online now or want them to be able to go online in the near future. By that estimate, Find/SVP projected that 45 million children will be online by 2002.
