About half—54 percent—of immigrant youths in United States have computers at home, compared with 75 percent of native-born children, according to a study by researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

The study broke out statistics on computer availability for Latino and Asian youths according to whether they were immigrants or U.S.-born, as well as for youths who were white or of any other racial or ethnic background. It included data for the nation and California.

Latino immigrant youths were the least likely of the groups to have computers at home. The researchers defined youths as people ages 5 to 25.
