Does it seem like folks around here never have their smartphones and tablets far from hand?  Now there’s data to back up that perception.  A new Census Bureau report ranks Washington among the top states for the percentage of the population who are constantly connected to the internet.

33 percent of Washingtonians access the Internet from multiple devices both at and away from home.  That is well above the national average of 27 percent, and ranks Washington fourth for the percentage of the population with the highest level of Internet connectivity.

The Census data reveal that, when it comes to these highly-connected individuals, a “digital divide” runs across the U.S.  In Colorado, the top-ranked state, the percentage of the populace who are highly-connected is more than double that of the lowest-ranked state, West Virginia.
