More Latinos have access to the internet than a few years ago and the digital divide between Latinos and Whites “is now at its narrowest point since 2009,” according to results from a study by Pew Research Center.
The study shows that internet access among Latinos increased from 64% to 84% between 2009 and 2015.
”In 2015, immigrant Latinos made up about half (52%) of all adult Latino internet users, up from 44% in 2009. And Spanish-dominant Latinos made up 32% of all Latino internet users in 2015, up from 20% in 2009. In both cases, these shares closely match each group’s share among the adult Latino population overall,” the study authors wrote.
Other key findings include:
• 80% of Latino adults access the internet from a mobile device
• 46% of Latinos access the internet from a home broadband connection
According to the authors, the majority of the 16% of Latinos who still have no access to the internet are foreign born.
