Abstract:

This paper examines the diffusion of China¡¯s Internet usage and probes the determinants that predict its diffusion. Major findings include: under the present economic growth and minimum telecommunication reform in the near future, China¡¯s Internet population fall in the normal ¡°S¡± curve and will level off after reaching 63million. The determinant model suggests that at current stage, the increasing of Internet population correspond with the area's cosmopolitism level, growth of service industry and the wealth of urban residents.In the model for Interent penetration rate, higher educational level among population, rate of home PC availability, the rate of urban population and urban residents¡¯income level are significant predictors to explain the variance of the percentage of population adopting the Internet in China.
