Bridging the digital divide: Infographics
Facts and stats on how COVID-19 is changing the landscape of digital inclusion.
There are now more people aged 50 and over who are online than ever before. Over the last several years, the proportion of older people using the internet has risen considerably faster than for the general population.
The COVID-19 pandemic has also spurred many people to use digital services for the first time and to use the internet in different ways. But despite the increase in number of older people being online, there are still around 4 million people aged 55 and over who have never used the internet.
This collection of infographics sets out the picture of who is offline, the sort of benefits they're missing out on, and what must be done to support them.
