The most commonly reported task for the 77 million workers who used a computer at work in October 2003 was accessing the Internet or using e-mail.
Three-quarters of workers who used a computer on the job said they used a computer to connect to the Internet or use e-mail. About two-thirds reported they used a computer for word processing or desktop publishing. Other common uses included spreadsheets or databases and calendar or scheduling. To a lesser extent, computers were used for graphics or design and programming.
