Abstract The term digital divide refers to the disparity in accessing to the technologies and resources of the information and communication. The digitalisation of the economy and the society may produce differences and gaps amongst individuals, households, businesses, and geographic areas, rich and poor countries. The digital divide refers to both the opportunities to access information and communication technologies and to their use of the Internet for a wide variety of activities. Access to basic telecommunications infrastructures is fundamental for understanding the issue, as it precedes and is more widely available then access to and use of the Internet. Many countries are aware of digital divide and Governments have begun to examine how best to ensure access to individuals, firms and local areas to these technologies and services and are performing policies to reduce it. For these reasons it is important to have available measures on the dimensions of the digital divide.
