Internet Usage and Older People

Internet Usage and Older People

Age UK reports “A large majority of 50-64 year olds (88%) and 65-74 year olds (75%) in England use the internet every day or almost every day, compared to under half (46%) of those aged 75+. Others use it less often, but among those aged 75+ more than two out of five (42%) do not use the internet.”

“Two-fifths (39%) of people aged 52 plus in England say they are using the internet more since the start of the coronavirus. However, usage has increased most among groups already using the internet regularly, and so far, there is little evidence that significant numbers of those previously digitally excluded have been prompted to get online during the first few months of the pandemic. Among those aged 75+, only around a quarter (24%) are using the internet more while nearly one in ten (9%) are using it less. Although the over 75s make up the highest proportion of non-users, only 15% of these say they would like to use the internet more.”  Read their full report here
