Internet usage drop-outs

Base: All respondents, weighted column percentages
Questions: A5, A6, A9

The Internet users drop-outs indicator aims to gauge sustainability of participation, at the individual level, in the Information Society. It is possible to capture this sustainability both in terms of the population of Internet users and at the level of general population (the latter is depicted). While it is encouraging to see that those who sever their online connectivity are, by and large, outnumbered by those who merely replace the home access with access from elsewhere, it is nevertheless important to bear the relevance of home access, not least given that it facilitates and encourages the participation for all at the level of a household.
