The U.S. Department of Agriculture in 2007 asked every farm operator in the country if he or she had a broadband Internet connection. Here are the results for the Midwest.
This chart shows the use of the Internet by farms in Midwestern states.
The top grid shows aggregate figures for all the Midwestern states, broken down by urban, rural and suburban counties. (Suburban counties are within metro areas, but have a high percentage of rural residents.)
The chart shows how many farm operators used the Internet in 2007. And it shows the number of operators who had broadband connection. Finally, the chart shows whether this use was above (in green) or below (in red) the national average.
Below the regional grid are all the states in the Midwest.
