United Kingdom : Younger disabled people enjoying the benefits of being online [TendersInfo (India)]
Ofcom has today published its most comprehensive study into disabled consumers use of communications services. The research shows that among the youngest age group (15-34), levels of internet access are broadly comparable, regardless of whether people have a disability or not (90% compared with 93%). This increases to 94% for disabled people and 97% for non-disabled people among the more affluent in this age group. However, for older (65+) less affluent disabled people, internet access levels are at their lowest (23%) which is significantly lower than among non-disabled people of the same age and socio-economic group (37%). Across all age groups, internet ownership is 55% for disabled consumers, compared with 83% for non-disabled consumers. This can partly be explained by their older profile as half of disabled people are aged 65+. The report also shows that mobile phone access is broadly comparable between disabled and non-disabled adults across most age groups. Ninety-two per cent of disabled people aged 15-34 have a mobile phone compared to 87% among non-disabled adults in this age group. Two-thirds of disabled people aged 75+ have a mobile phone but this is lower than among non-disabled people of the same age (72%). Variations by disability There are also variations by type of disability. Internet access is highest among people with hearing (64%) and visual impairments (62%) but lowest among people with mobility impairments (53%) or multiple impairments (51%). Of all disability groups, people with mobility or multiple impairments are the oldest, most likely to live alone, and have a lower household income. The majority of disabled internet users are using the internet daily or more often (73%), although this is lower than non-disabled internet users (85%).
