The Australian Digital Inclusion Index, powered by Roy Morgan Research, measures the extent of digital inclusion in Australia. The first report was released on Wednesday 24 August 2016.
Access and affordability can present barriers to digital inclusion, however an individual’s digital engagement is also largely affected by Digital Ability (attitudes, skills and activities), whether a person can see potential benefits of engagement, and motivation and attitude, including concerns about safety and security.
The Australian Digital Inclusion Index is not tailored to a particular group or section of the community. It measures the level of digital inclusion of the Australian population as a whole and tracks this over time. Any community in Australia can replicate the index to compare their results against Australia as a whole and if they are able, to do this over time.
