The Carnegie UK Trust and Ipsos MORI have published new research on digital inclusion in Scotland.
An update to the Trust’s 2013 Across the Divide study, which highlighted access to the internet as an increasingly critical social inclusion issue, the new study examines barriers to internet use and how these barriers can be overcome.
The findings are based on 400 in-depth interviews with internet users and non-users in Dumfries and Kirkcaldy. The conclusions set out central issues, such as concerns people have regarding viruses and privacy, that must be considered as part of an effective strategy to tackle digital exclusion.
