Accessing services, isolation and loneliness are significant problems for older Australians and compromise their wellbeing. They are likely to increase with the doubling of the population aged 75+ in the next 23 years. This study investigates the extent to which older people currently use Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in their daily lives and identifies the barriers to greater take up of ICT, which could enhance their access to networks and services. The study focuses on a large local government area, which includes representations of most socio economic, ethnic and living-situation sub groups among Australia’s metropolitan based older populations. The data consists of a questionnaire and the results of the survey in SPSS.
