Which country has the highest proportion of computer users?
Posted On August 4, 2021
The answer is all over the world.
More than 60 per cent of Australians own a smartphone, according to the latest data from Statista.
And the country with the highest number of smartphone users is in the United States, which has one in every three Americans.
The U.S. has more than twice as many smartphone users as Australia, according the latest Statista data.
But despite being home to the world’s largest smartphone market, Australia has a much lower percentage of smartphone subscribers than the United Kingdom, which currently has more smartphone users than Australia.
The United Kingdom has the lowest number of users, at 3.6 per cent, while the United State has more users, 6.2 per cent.
What’s more, Australians account for a quarter of all smartphone users in the U.K. The UK has more mobile phone subscribers than Australia, at 13.5 per cent and a whopping 37.5 million mobile phone users, compared to 7.4 million in Australia.
And according to Statista, Britain accounts for about half of the mobile phone subscriptions in Australia, while Australia accounts for less than 5 per cent in the UK.
Where does this leave us?
We can’t quite say what’s going on in the smartphone market in the states, or in the cities, but we can say it’s very much in Australia’s favour.
In 2017, Australians spent $13.4 billion on smartphones, according a report by the Australian National University.
Of that, $4.1 billion went to the United Arab Emirates and $1.9 billion went on smartphones in the rest of the world, according Statista’s latest figures.
The other $4 billion was spent in Australia and $8.6 billion went in the UAE, which was home to Apple Inc’s headquarters.
In the U, the number of smartphones per capita is almost exactly the same as in Australia: 2.4.
However, the U is also home to a large number of people with jobs in IT, finance, finance and technology.
The number of tech jobs in the country has grown by more than 50 per cent over the last five years.
And of the top 10 professions in the region, 14 are in IT.
In addition, Australians have an average salary of $67,700 in 2017, compared with the U’s $65,700.
In other words, in Australia the U pays more than $10,000 more for a job in IT than in the other countries.
