ICT in Aruba

Currently the question is rather ‘who does not have a computer or laptop in the home’ or ‘who does not own a mobile phone’, than ‘who owns one’.

In this paper, the data obtained will be presented and the presence of computers, mobile phones, and internet connections will be discussed in relation to relevant variables such as, the average age of household members, the average number of household members, the geographical location of households, type of household and household income. In addition, special attention will be dedicated to the school attending population with or without computers, mobile phones and/or internet connections at home.

Also, we describe the characterization of car ownership by the more vulnerable groups in Aruba and in view of their dependency on own private transportation and their accessibility to the network of public transport.
