It's not really easy to get some of that demographic information.

You might be able to find something interesting amongst the data that Nielsen//NetRatings releases:

You're welcome, tomsk.

I'd like to see Robert's article, too. Somehow I must have missed it.

Yep, there are a couple that provide some stats (although not all requested):

Study: November online sales up 19 percent:

and

On a non-adjusted year-over-year basis, the U.S. Department of Commerce reported that e-commerce sales grew by 21.2 percent:

I think Bill's link above will lead you to the first study.

Robert

Whatís the situation if you want to quote the information on the link do you quote the source or do I have to get permission from the website?

I'd quote the source and get permission if you are using more than just a couple of sentences on your site.

Quoting the source would likely be sufficient if you are just using a couple of snippets.
