New media audience measurement

Date of publication: June 15, 1998


The population of the Internet’s World Wide Web users has grown at astonishing rates during the past three years in the United States. As of mid-1997 over one in five American households surfs the web.

The authors demonstrate the importance and relevance of new and infrequent web users and offer a sample design that successfully captures these key users.
