More than a third of EU25 population have no basic computer skills

Eurostat reports the following. Imagine this as a setting for teachers in Europe!

Large differences between the generations

In the EU251, in 2005, 37% of people aged between 16 and 74 had no basic computer skills2. This percentage was slightly higher for women (39%) than for men (34%). Among Member States for which data are available, the survey showed notable differences between countries. Large differences also existed between age groups and between different education levels.

These figures are published3 by Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Communities.
