Everyone who needs a computer should have one. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2019 American Community Survey, 20,812,472 U.S. households do not have a computer or any other computing device beyond a smartphone. This equates to a staggering 55 million people in the U.S. without a connected computer.
People of color or from marginalized communities are acutely more affected. An unknown number of households possess only one computer. This is insufficient for multiple adults or students working or schooling concurrently. These non-deviced or under-deviced households make up what we describe as the “technology gap.”
