The number of people online is up.
The number who are online is down.
But as the online shopping and ordering boom has made food and drink available at virtually any time, we now know how many of those are actually online.
To get a better picture, the New York Times used data from the National Center for Health Statistics to estimate how many food orders a month were placed online.
And when the numbers were calculated, it showed the online ordering market was worth $4.4 billion in 2011, up about 4.5% from 2010.
The numbers are not quite as stark when we look at sales, but the trend is clear.
Sales of food, beverages and food accessories online rose from $4 billion last year to $5.2 billion in 2010, while sales of food and beverage supplies in stores dropped from $3.6 billion in 2009 to $3 billion in 2014.
Food is available for online ordering as well as delivery, so online orders are likely to grow in the future.
That said, online orders represent a smaller percentage of total food and food-related sales than food orders in stores.
The biggest growth in online food and beverages sales has been for food, wine and spirits, which accounted for about a third of the online orders in 2011.
But the industry is expected to grow even more over the next few years.
The next biggest growth area is for food prepared foods, which was the second largest food group in 2011 with about $2.3 billion worth of orders.
The food-prepared foods industry is projected to grow to about $7.5 billion in 2019.
The remaining food orders include food and nonfood items, such as meat, poultry and eggs.
