Abstract Although vast amounts of attention and resources have recently been devoted toward the World Wide Web, relatively little research has been conducted examining Web usage and societal implications. With the goals of understanding the Web user population and promoting the Web as a viable surveying medium, the WWW User Surveys were initially conducted by the Georgia Institute of Technology's Graphics, Visualization, and Usability Center during January 1994. Subsequent surveys have been administered approximately every 6 months thereafter. Each survey is conducted for one month using the limited interactivity of the Web, where users point and click on responses within their Web browsers and submit results to a centralized server for processing. The results of the first 4 surveys are discussed. Throughout the 4 surveys, substantial shifts in the characteristics of Web users have occurred. Changes in user demographics, content providers, and usage patterns among WWW users are examined.
