Share of social media users within population groups with different educational attainment levels, 2014

Source: Doi: 10.1787/gov_glance-2015-en

This is probably unique in the OECD countries: only in Germany people with a high level of education use less social media (no or low formal education: 51%, high formal education: 42%). In all other OECD countries people with a high level of education use social media more frequently.

Based on the Eurostat survey on “ICT usage by individuals”. To differentiate the take-up of social media, the survey uses different categories of educational attainment based on the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED). “High formal education” refers to ISCED levels 5 or 6; “low or no formal education” refers to ISCED levels 0, 1 or 2. Countries are ordered by size of the difference between the two measures. More information: http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/cache/metadata/EN/isoc_bde15c_esms.htm.
