Does anyone have information on number and proportion of internet users per country worldwide (or for as many countries as possible)?

Other useful related statistics:

  • Regularity of internet usage
  • Demographics of internet usage (age-group, sex, level of education...?)
  • Mobile internet usage

Any help appreciated.

The ITU - International Telecommunication Union - also publish a small number of datasets relating to communications usage/adoption: ITU free statistics.

The ITU ICT Eye/ICT Statistics database currently lets you download annual datasets relating to:

  • Fixed-telephone subscriptions
  • Mobile cellular subscriptions
  • Percentage of individuals using the Internet, fixed Internet subscriptions, fixed (wired)-broadband subscriptio

They also publish a list of links to national telecoms agencies and national statistics sites.
