Due to the rapid development of digital technologies and ICT and the uneven distribution of scientific knowledge across countries and regions, the problem of digital inequality is becoming increasingly urgent. The rapid spread of communication tools between only a few layers of users contributes to the widening of the digital divide between rich and poor regions in the field of information. This is the reason for the necessity of carrying out actual analyzes of this problem.

The purpose of this work is a comprehensive study of digital inequality in Russia. Using regression analysis, the main factors affecting ICT accessibility in the regions of Russia were identified. The regions were also classified according to the level of development of digital technologies and ICT and a portrait of the group of active Internet users was compiled.
