Study of Digital Divide in Russia and Countries of the World
2019
Currently, humanity lives in an information society, where the possession of knowledge and information is an integral part of the life of any individual. The main source of information is the Internet, and its penetration into people's livelihoods depends on the availability of computers and mobile phones. For some regions, the use of such technologies has become commonplace, and for others it is a luxury. This is where the digital divide manifests itself. This study examines factors affecting the digital divide, in Russia and in the world, using multidimensional statistical and econometric analysis. The results of this work contribute to identifying the causes of digital inequality, and hence ways of possible solutions to this problem.
