Nowadays we’ve got so used to using the Internet what we assume it’s normal that everyone uses it almost daily. That is in fact true for some countries, but not everywhere. On this map, we’ll look at what percentage of the population (ages 16-74) in Europe has accessed the internet in the past three months.
North and Western Europe clearly have the highest percentage of people that have accessed the Internet in the past 3 months. It’s especially high in Scandinavia, where it’s over 90% in every region. The Agder og Rogaland region in Norway is the only area where 100% of the population accessed the Internet in the past 3 months.
The lowest percentages can be found in South-Eastern Europe, Ukraine and Portugal. The Güneydogu Anadolu region in Turkey has the lowest percentage in Europe (55%).
