Hi. In table B28002, does variable for "Broadband of any type" include only cable, DSL, fiber optic, and similar connections, or does it also include cellular, satellite, and/or "other" service? I can't find any definition of "Broadband of any type" in the Subject Definitions or Table Shells.The Subject Definitions file states "Respondents select a checkbox for “Yes” or “No” for each of five types of services: a.) cellular data plan for a smartphone or other mobile device, b.) broadband (high speed) Internet service such as cable, fiber optic, or DSL, c.) satellite, d.) dial-up or e.) some other service." This suggests cable, fiber optic, and DSL are distinct from cellular and satellite.
However, in table B28002, "Broadband of any type" and "Broadband such as cable, fiber optic or DSL" are two separate variables. Indentation in the Table Shells for these two indicators are the same, suggesting one is not a subset of the other. If "Cellular data plan", "Broadband such as cable, fiber optic or DSL", "Satellite Internet service", and "Other service..." were indented beneath Broadband of any type, this would be clearer.
Thanks for your help!
