The Digital Divide In Brazil, 2004 – 2009: Evolution and Effects on Political Engagement

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Results of a 2010 survey of twenty-two Latin American countries show that Brazil ranks first with respect to Internet connectivity. Analyses of national household surveys further show an increase in microcomputers and Internet access between 2004 and 2009, and a decline in the digital divide by rural-urban residence and socioeconomic status. The study also finds that the intensity of Internet use has a positive effect on the knowledge and attitudes deemed relevant to democratic governance.
