Scott Ewing, Australian Digital Inclusion Index, New data on digital inclusion from the ABS Household Use of Information Technology, 2014-15, Australian Policy Online 22 February 2016

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 in the related content link below.

The data shows that while the digital divide continues to narrow, persistent and significant differences remain between different groups of Australians 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.
