The Digital Divide
The economic, educational and social inequalities between those who have computers and internet access and those who do not.
Households without home computers
Households without internet service
Households earn less than $50,000 annually
The digital divide has existed for decades with disproportionate impacts on households located in low income areas and among populations that are predominantly Black and Latino. In today’s society, a computer and reliable internet service are essential to accessing education, employment opportunities, healthcare services, financial resources, support networks, and commerce.
