Digitale Spaltung in Deutschland: geringere Bildung - seltener am PC

Die Nutzung von Computern und dem Internet ist in Deutschland keineswegs gleichmäßig verbreitet. Daten aus dem Jahre 2005 lassen erkennen, dass Personen mit einem geringen Bildungsniveau wesentlich seltener den PC und das Internet nutzen als Personen mit höherem Bildungsniveau. Auch hinsichtlich der Art der Nutzung von Computer und Internet lassen sich sozio-demographische Unterschiede feststellen. Beispielsweise ist das Programmieren - unabhängig vom Alter - vorwiegend eine Männerdomäne. Während Menschen höherer Bildungsschichten den Computer häufiger zur Gestaltung der Arbeitswelt sowie zum Schreiben und Lernen verwenden, setzen Personen mit geringerer Bildung den Computer signifikant häufiger zum Spielen und Musikhören, also eher im unmittelbaren Freizeitbereich ein.
