Abstract: 過去在探討非居家或上班電腦使用地點的研究微之又微。本文針對2002-2004 年總體社會調查資料進行對數回歸分析,分析更可能或不可能在家外或工作外使用電腦的族群。研究結果顯示,人口變量如年齡、種族、婚姻狀況、地區,社經地位 (教育程度、家庭收入),是否自謀職業,是否對財政狀況滿意等,為解釋是否在家外或工作外使用電腦的有效自變量,然而職業和性別的影響則不顯著。本研究結 果對於社會機構在公共場所提供計算機基礎設施和服務,以及對學校和圖書館改善電腦使用室及服務具有參考價值。
There is little research on the patterns of computer use outside home or work. This study examines who is more or less likely to use a computer at a location other than work or home by using the 2002–2004 General Social Survey data and logistic regression analysis. Demographic variables (such as age, race, marital status, and region), socioeconomic status (such as education and family income), self employment, and satisfaction with financial situation are significant predictors of computer use at locations other than home or work; but occupation and gender make no difference. The findings will help institutions to provide computer infrastructure support and services for customers in public places, and especially help schools and libraries to improve computer labs and services.
