New data from ABS sheds light on digital inclusion in Australia

This brief report, prepared by Scott Ewing for the Australian Digital Inclusion Index, includes graphs of a few of the key data points that shed light on digital inclusion in Australia from the ABS’s recently released Household Use of Information Technology in Australia, 2014-15. The full data released can be accessed here.

The data shows that while the digital divide continues to narrow, persistent and significant differences remain between different groups of Australian in relation to both access and use of the internet. These differences are related to attributes including income, age, employment status, education levels and location.
