    Default Decreasing Digital Divide

    CNN has done a report on the UN's flawed statistics wherein the digital divide between richer and poorer countries is actually less than they project! Jamaica gets mentioned so I thought I'd share this article with you.

    Check it out here!

    Thanks for the link rreky. As you said, Jamaica got mentioned in the article. Let's look at what was said about us.

    The article mentioned that 23% of the population uses the Internet. PIOJ's population count for 2002 was 2,624,700, so 23% would be 603,681 Internet users. PIOJ's stats also show that the total number employed in 2002 was 954,300, so 63% of the employed population uses the Internet. Pretty impressive huh? Take into consideration though that the Internet usage rate is provided by JAMPRO from a survey sample size of 611 residents and 140 businesses. How accurate do you think these figures are now ???
