State-by-state summary data

public library funding and technology access study logo

The 2011–2012 Public Library Funding & Technology Access Survey sampled and received responses from all states and the District of Columbia. The survey did not receive enough responses from all states for analysis purposes. The following state tables provide selected summary survey data for the states for which there were adequate and representative responses (48 in all, plus the District of Columbia).

States for which data could not be fully analyzed are Connecticut and Oregon.

The survey data were weighted to enable state projections. The weighting used was based on two variables:

1. Metropolitan status of libraries in the state (urban, suburban and rural).

2. Total number of libraries in the state (the data presented in the tables are statewide estimates).
