Wanted to re-surface this incredible research paper by of MIT and Lesley Chiou of UC Berkeley: “Social Distancing, Internet Access, and Inequality”
Using SafeGraph data, they were able to show how the digital divide impacts people’s ability to follow health directives around social isolation. Specifically, they found that the combination of having high income and high-speed internet appears to be the biggest driver of the propensity to stay home.
