Internet Population

POST_Internet population.png

A majority of the world’s population today still does not have internet access. Currently only around 40% of the world is actively using the internet – in the poorest quarter of the world, only about 20%. In the developed world, internet penetration is over 80% – some dense and connected countries (such as Qatar, Netherlands, South Korea) have over 90% of their population online. On the other end of the spectrum, some 22 countries are under 5% internet penetration (such as Myanmar, Ethiopia, Congo).

The map above displays a distorted world map with each country’s area representing their internet population. The map is also color coded to show the relative internet penetration among regions.
