Americans have complex views about the impact of diversity and the best way to achieve it. Most say it’s a good thing that the country has a diverse population, but others say this introduces its own challenges. While most value workplace diversity, few want employers to consider race or ethnicity in hiring and promotion decisions.

10% of Americans don’t use the internet. The share of adults who don’t go online has changed little over the past four years, but it is substantially lower than in 2000. Age, education, household income and community type factor into internet non-adoption.
