"Surveys consistently report that people with disabilities have only half the rate of Internet access of people without a disability. Despite regular increases over time, people with disabilities have not caught up, and still face a significant digital divide."Despite the regular increases, both metro and non-metro people with disabilities have lower rates of Internet use than their geographic counterparts with no disability. However, non-metro people with disabilities have the lowest rate (26.7%)."
"People living with disability are less likely than other adults to use the internet.
