Silicon, Circuits, and the Digital Revolution
Penetration rates of major consumer products in U.S. Households
- Establish a measure of penetration rate and rank order the top five appliances
for penetration into U.S. households.
- What time did it take each appliance to successfully penetrate the U.S.
- Make as many interesting observations (sociological, political, or otherwise)
as you can from the graph.
- Identify historical occurences that may be associated with features of the
curves and speculate on the possible connections.
