US weighs computers

Most Americans -- 60 percent -- think computers have improved the quality of life in the US, but slightly more than half the public also believes computers present a threat to privacy. At the same time, 80 percent of the public believes that computers make it easier to obtain confidential information improperly on individuals.

These are some of the conclusions of a national survey conducted by pollster Louis Harris in a project sponsored by a leading insurance company and recently reported in Datamation magazine.

Not surprisingly, the value of computers is seen differently by various groups. High ratings come from younger adults, college educated, Easterners, people with above average income and liberals.
