Notes

Abstract: This paper explores the development of Internet use in Latin America. The analysis explores the macro- and microsocial
expectations and actualities of Internet use in Latin America. While much is assumed about Internet penetration
in the region, this paper lays out actual penetration rates, and attempts to understand what has fostered Internet growth
in the region. Various levels of economic, technological, and governmental development encourage the expansion of
Internet penetration in the region. By looking at micro-level Internet consumption, this research employs Latin American
Public Opinion Project survey data taken from multiple years and offers an initial analysis of the determinants of
Internet use. Compared to other forms of news media consumption, Internet users are younger and more skeptical of
domestic news media.

Resumen: Este documento analiza el desarrollo del uso de Internet en América Latina. Los análisis exploran las expectativas y realidades
macro y micro sociales del uso de Internet en la región. Mientras se conjetura tanto acerca de la penetración de Internet
en América Latina, este documento establece las tasas reales de penetración, e intenta comprender qué ha fomentado
su crecimiento en la región. Diferentes niveles de desarrollo económico, tecnológico y gubernamental impulsan la expansión
de la penetración de Internet en la región. Al observar el consumo en un nivel micro, esta investigación emplea datos
de encuestas de varios años del Proyecto de Opinión Pública de América Latina (Latin American Public Opinion Project)
y ofrece un análisis inicial de los factores determinantes del uso de Internet. En comparación con otras formas de consumo
de medios de comunicación, los usuarios de Internet son más jóvenes y más escépticos a los medios de prensa locales.
