A map showing EU’s digital illiteracy confirms that the Scandinavia is well placed

Monday, 26 March 2012
Facebook, Google searches and streaming movies and music from the internet is an integral part of everyday life for many most people these days in the Scandinavia. But there are still European countries which are still struggling with good network.

Indeed, a survey conducted by Eurostat show that 22 percent of Europeans have never ever used a computer.
The differences between individual countries are really interesting to observe. In Romania, 50 percent of 16 - 74 year olds have used a computer while in Sweden it is 96 percent. In Bulgaria (55 percent) and Greece (59 percent) are also lagging behind. Denmark is well above average. Here 94 percent of people tried to work with a computer, while the average for all 27 EU countries is 78 percent.

The European commission is carry out a campaign to assist people get on line. The campaign will encourage more people to feel safe on the Internet, and even though places such as Denmark have a good computer usage statistic, there are still plenty of opportunities to get online help. 

Eurostat figures also show clearly that countries that are now lagging behind will get caught up with the rest in the coming time. Looking at the youngest group of participants - those between 16 and 24 years - in most countries more than 95 percent, have worked with a computer.

Again in Romania only 81 percent, and Bulgaria 87 percent and Italy with 90 percent, that stands out in the bottom.

In Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Finland, Sweden and Britain have 100 percent of those between 16 and 24 years have used a computer. In Denmark only 99 percent have been on line.
