ICT_Usage_by_Households_2022.jpgNine out of 10 persons aged between 16 and 74 years used the internet in 2022.

Internet usage by individuals


The survey on information and communication technology usage among households, which was partly
financed by the European Commission, showed that the entire 16 to 24 age cohort used the internet in
2022, while individuals between 65 and 74 years recorded the lowest levels at 65.1 per cent (Table 2).
Among all internet users, 97.8 per cent access the internet on a daily basis (Table 3). Internet usage
in Malta was 1.6 percentage points higher then the EU-27 average (Chart 1).
Among all internet users, the two most common uses of internet were communication and entertainment
with 97.3 per cent and 94.3 per cent, respectively (Chart 2).


e-Government services


Between 2021 and 2022 the number of e-Government users increased by 6.2 per cent. In absolute
terms, the population accessing e-Government services stood at 267,917, which is equivalent to 73.2
per cent of internet users. The uptake of this service was more common among individuals aged
between 16 and 34 years (Table 4).


e-Commerce


Internet users who engaged in e-commerce activities during the reference period amounted to 235,793
(64.4 per cent of internet users). The majority of e-commerce users (55.9 per cent) were within the 16
and 34 years age bracket (Table 5). Deliveries from restaurants, fast-food chains or catering services,
and clothes were the two most common goods and services acquired online (Table 6). Over 121,000
internet users subscribed to streaming or downloading services of films or series and a further 70,125
purchased the streaming or downloading of music (Table 7). When booking accomodation or transport
services from an online platform, e-commerce users showed a predisposition to book directly from
the enterprise, rather than from private individuals (Table 8)
