Imec Digimeter 2016: Only 6,6% of Flemish people have no smart devices at home


Every year, the imec digimeter report brings us up to date on the possession and use of media (technology) among the Flemish population. The research is quite unique and has been keeping a close eye on the Flemish media user since 2009. Findings and results are based on the annual survey amongst 2.164 Flemings aged 15 and older.

Almost everyone in Flanders has one or more devices enabling them to be constantly online wherever they go: only 6,6% indicate that they have no smart devices in their homes. Yet, digimeter also found that not everyone is surfing the digital wave at the same speed. On the one hand, one in three is heavily dependent on their smartphone or social media (and 13% are actually suffering from digibesity). On the other, 11% are unable to use digital applications properly.
