Abstract/Excerpt

In this chapter, w analyze the influence of social, economic, ethnic, innovation, and social capital factors on e-entertainment services for a large sample of continental U.S. counties. These factors are important because prior studies at the national, state/provincial, and individual level have consistently identified one or several of these factors as strongly associated with technology levels. Knowing what factors are highly associated with e-enetertainment provides knowledge that can help interventions of varied kinds to stimulate more access and use of e-entertainment. Further we identify and explain the nationwide geographic patterns and clustering of e-entertainment use of the Internet.
