A lifestyle study by Nielsen/NetRatings's Prizm Internet Targeting service, finds Internet users with lower income, education and blue-collar professions spend, on average, more time online than those with higher incomes, education and white-collar jobs. The average amount of time spent online is about nine hours a month; those with a lower income (defined as $21,000 to $33,000) spent between 11 and 12 hours online.
