|A.I.U.S. American internet user survey
Consumers accessed the Internet in record numbers in 1997. More than 23 million expressed interest in signing up for the Internet in 1998. With such explosive growth, the ability to accurately identify and understand Internet users is now critical for every business.
The American Internet User Survey offers detailed insight into the behavior and essential characteristics of the Internet consumer through a series of in-depth interviews with Internet users and prospective users. Now in its fourth year in the field, the AIUS offers historical data for precise trend tracking and forecasting capabilities. AIUS tracks the trends and key issues of the four central user segments -- personal, business, home and mobile.
Methodology: The largest random digit dialed survey of Internet users and non-users, AIUS is fielded in the second and fourth quarter of every year. Cyber Dialogue conducts approximately 13,000 screener interviews to identify 1,000 current online users and 1,000 non-users. AIUS asks 150+ questions enabling more comprehensive and in-depth topical coverage. This yields an expansive data set ideal for developing segmentation models and extensive customized cross-tabbing. Data is carefully weighted for response bias by age, gender, income and geographic region. Annual subscribers have input into the design of the survey questionnaire.
Deliverables: The AIUS may be purchased as a standalone survey, complete with topline data and a management report, or as a Continuous Advisory Service (CAS). The CAS offers the following deliverables based on the AIUS data set:
Inquiry Service: Direct access to analysts for help with data interpretation, trends and daily marketing needs.

AMERICAN INTERNET USER SURVEY
American Internet User Survey finds more than 41.5 million U.S. adults are actively using the Internet (New York - January 27, 1998)New York, January 27, 1998 -- 21% of U.S. adults are now using the Internet, an increase of one-third from the 2nd quarter of 1997.
"The number of adults online continued to grow dramatically in the second half of the year, confirming a growing dependency on the Internet," according to Thomas E. Miller, vice president of Cyber Dialogue and developer of the American Internet User Survey. "However, the prospects for future growth become more complicated when you consider non-user interest in using the Internet and user churn," Miller stated.
The survey found that 15.9 million U.S. adults tried the Internet in the past 12 months and for whatever reason are no longer users. "We first noticed this trend in the 2nd Quarter of 1997 and realized that by not taking into account user attrition, some surveys were providing inflated Internet user numbers," Miller said.
The survey also found that 23.8 million adults expressed interest in signing up for Internet access within the next 12 months, an increase of more than 2 million users who expressed the same interest in the 2nd quarter of 1997.
"Internet usage will continue to grow for the next fives years, but the market will become much more segmented as the medium becomes more mainstream and user preferences become more divergent," Miller stated.
Additional data points of interest include: 58% of current adult Internet users are male; 42% are female
51% of Web users use the Web on a daily basis
87% of Internet users agree with the statement: "The Internet provides more efficient access to info I need every day."
77% of adults who use the Internet predominately for work agree that: "Online services have made me more productive at my job."
The American Internet User Survey user survey is a comprehensive overview of Internet users and potential users. Updated twice a year, the survey covers such topics as business vs. personal use, online commerce, ISP trends, content preferences and in-depth user demographics.
