In setting out the first findings of the Australian Digital Inclusion Index (ADII), this report provides our most comprehensive picture yet of Australians' online participation. The ADII has been created to measure the level of digital inclusion across the Australian population, and to monitor this level over time. Based on data from Roy Morgan Research, the ADII measures three key dimensions of digital inclusion — Access, Affordability and Digital Ability – and shows how they change over time, according to people's social and economic circumstances, and across geographic locations within Australia. This first report presents findings for the years 2014–2016.
