Table - Top 10 Countries By Digital Natives Penetration

If all the “digital natives” in the world combined to form their own country, it would be slightly larger than the US, according to a report [PDF] from the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and the Georgia Institute of Technology, which together constructed a model to estimate the number – and penetration – of digital natives around the world. Out of the world’s population of 7 billion, an estimated 363 million count as digital natives, per the report. That’s 5.2% of the world’s population – but that figure varies significantly by country.

A quick note on what is meant by “digital natives.” The study defines a digital native as “a youth, aged 15-24 inclusive, with 5 years or more experience using the internet.” Read the rest at MarketingCharts.
