  • Abstract
    In this paper, we analyze the Internet usage and adoption at the household level in Spain. Our objective is twofold. First, we analyze differences across regions in Spain and the position of the Spanish economy within Europe. Second, we provide some thoughts that could be useful for policy makers. To do so, we examine the reasons given by the individuals for not using or adopting the Internet. We use data from the Household Survey of ICT Equipment and Usage, conducted by INE, as well as data from Eurostat. We cover the period 2004-2010.
