Short Take: Most Americans not "concerned" about Y2K

More than 90 percent of Americans are aware of disruptions that could be caused by Year 2000 technology glitch, while only about one in five are "very concerned" about the problem, according to a study by CDB Research & Consulting. The survey also found that more than half, or 52 percent, of the respondents were "unconcerned" about the issue. Researchers said it appears that the educated and affluent seem to be even less concerned about potential disruptions to daily life by Y2K than others.
