The gap between the two ratings is most narrow among the 18-29 age bracket, said Pavol Rankov co-author of the survey, which polled 1,500 people.

The new poll reported that 11.3 percent of the respondents gathered everyday technical and trade information on-line last year while a previous survey in 2003 reported the number as only 5.3 percent. TASR
