The Worlds Internet Population

A map has been created by the Oxford Internet Institute which shows the world’s internet users by country and what percentage of each country has access to the internet. The map uses 2011 data from the World Bank on internet users and total population.

The World Bank has tracked the number of Internet users and Internet connections per country since the 1990s as part of its Worldwide Governance Indicators project and the 2011 data shows a strong increase in web users throughout Asia, where 42% of the worlds internet population is now located. China is now home to the world’s largest Internet population at over half a billion. The United States, India, and Japan then follow as the next most populous nations of Internet users.
