The 2001 Australian Census included questions about the use of home computers and the Internet. This paper analyses the socioeconomic and regional distributional characteristics of computer and Internet users across Australia, examining correlations between socioeconomic variables and rates of use and identifying inequality of home computer and Internet use by income and location. It discusses the implications of being on the wrong side of the digital divide for people who are not connected.
