Abstract

This project will analyze the relationships between the different options an individual currently has available in the realm of reading materials today. Interactions between cell phones, computers, e-readers, tablets, newspapers, libraries, and additional variables will be compared with each other in regard to gender, age, ethnicity, language, and the state in which individuals live. This analysis will show the recent trends on how individuals are currently choosing to engage in the activity of reading and how likely it is for one group to choose one type of reading over another. The data in this analysis was collected through a survey collected through the Pew Internet and American Life Project in December 2011 which contained questions on reading habits, library use, and e-reader ownership. The software SPSS will be used to test the data for significance, correlation, and relationships between several variables.
