This chapter examines relevant national and international data and addresses the digital divide between and within OECD countries. It does not address digital divide issues for developing economies or the North/South divide. It focuses on the following issues:

-- What are the indicators of the digital divide?

-- What does the digital divide look like? How is it captured in national statistics in terms of social, business and demographic characteristics?

-- How rapidly is the divide changing and in what directions?

This chapter explores indicators of ICT access and use, the differences between leaders and laggards in terms of access and use and measures of changes in access.
