Other AP-Univision poll findings:

_Hispanics who have children in the home are more likely to have a computer: Seventy-one percent of mostly English-speaking households without children have a computer, compared with 85 percent for those with children.

_There are some limits to the influence of Spanish-language media. Mostly English-speaking Latinos often favored English media when making big decisions, such as finding news about a disaster or information on major purchases.

_Less than one-third of Hispanics who prefer English reported spending any time going to Spanish-language Internet sites. Almost one-half of mostly Spanish-speaking Hispanics said they spent time on English-language websites.

The AP-Univision poll was conducted from March 11 to June 3 by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. Using a sample of households provided by The Nielsen Company, 1,521 Hispanics were interviewed in English and Spanish, mostly by mail but also by telephone and the Internet. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

Stanford University’s participation in the study was made possible by a grant from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
