Understanding The Rural - Urban Digital Divide
This paper explains the current "digital divide" in internet use between rural and urban areas using a Logit adoption model with data collected from the August 2000 Current Population Survey. A non-linear decomposition shows that rural urban household attribute differences account for 66 percent of the digital divide, while place based differences account for the remaining 34 percent of the divide.
