According to Fox News, out of those people who don't go online, only 8 percent want to, while the rest said that they are not interested.

The study revealed the reasons why people in the US did not use the Internet, which includes 34 percent of the respondents who think that the medium is not relevant to them and they don't need it.

13 percent don't have a computer while 7 percent don't have Internet access and 6 percent said that it's too expensive.

The report said that only three percent said they are worried about things such as privacy, viruses, spam or hackers.

According to the study, age, income, education level and race have a lot to do with who is and isn't online as 44 percent of people 65 or older are not online, compared with 2 percent of those aged 18 to 29 and those who have not graduated from high school, 41 percent don't go online, compared with 4 percent of those with a college degree.
