Preface

Information technology such as the Internet and computers are now commonplace in many homes and workplaces. As the Internet becomes an important means of accessing a wide variety of information and services both within New Zealand and globally, the number and type of households connected to the Internet is a topic of increasing interest.

The aim of this report is to examine whether a digital divide exists in New Zealand and if so, to identify the main household characteristics which influence this divide. Data has been drawn from the 2001 Census of Population and Dwellings with supporting data from the 2000/01 Household Economic Survey. The report will prove a useful resource for those developing policy, as well as those involved in the dissemination of information and services.

The Digital Divide is part of a series of web-based analytical reports that examine social trends and issues of current interest. The next report to be published will look at language retention in New Zealand
