World

According to recent studies, nearly three-quarters of adults (73%) in Poland are online at least once a week, which is 5 percentage points (pp) more than a year earlier, reported the Public Opinion Research Centre (CBOS) according to news agency PAP.

"Internet use is almost universal among people under 45 and also common among those aged 45 to 54, three-quarters of whom are also online," CBOS stressed. The largest increase in Internet users compared to the previous year took place in the age groups from 55 to 64 (10 pp), 65 to 74 (7 pp), as well as in the group from 35 to 44 years of age (6 pp).

According to the survey, only 13% of respondents aged 75 and older use the Internet. CBOS also indicated that the number of Poles who use the Internet to shop and sell products has increased since the previous year. Online shopping was done by nearly two-thirds of all respondents, and nearly one-third sold something in this way.
