The 2014 Eurostat survey (see figure 3) shows slight differences between the 16-24 and the 25-55-year-olds. However, within the 55-74 age group, women tend to have rather low or basic digital skills, while men have more advanced such skills. Age-specific differences are much more noticeable. In general, students have a high level of digital skills; within the generation currently on the labour market, the proportion of people with low, basic and above-basic levels of digital skills is very similar. The 55-74 age group is characterised by low or basic digital competences.
