Notes: Approximately 8 million households are neither renters nor owners (living in group quarters, for example) and are thus excluded from the table and analysis. Approximately 8.25 million households lack information on broadband access, and they, too, have been excluded from the table and analysis. Questions about broadband access are only available to those who indicate they have internet access via a paid subscription (not available to those with internet access without a subscription and those without internet access altogether).
