The elderly are lagging behind in terms of ICT usage

In 2016, about 83% of the adult population in the OECD accessed the Internet, and 73% used it daily. But differences among countries and social groups remain large. Differences in Internet uptake are linked primarily to age and education, often intertwined with income levels. In most countries, uptake by young people is nearly universal, but there are wide differences for older generations.
