Some weeks ago, Wenhog Chen, Jeph Boase and I asked AoIR-niks for leads to
information on world wise use of the Internet. A number of folks were kind
enough to respond privately.  Wenhong has compiled the information. It
appears below.

She, Jeph and I thank you all. Our handiwork will appeat in The Internet
in Everyday Life, edited by Caroline Haythornthwaite and myself, published
by Blackwells in Spring-Summer 2002.

data on international internet use. Now, we would like to thank Eszter

Crampton, Gitte Stald, Jenni Shi and others for their valuable info.

interesting data on global digital divide and internet usage in different

Commercial site:
