The number of social network and Internet users is growing in the Czech Republic, according to new CZSO data.
The pandemic appears to have changed the way people in the country interact and use their online presence in general.
Below is a breakdown of some of the data facts.
Social networks are now used by 4.9 million people over the age of 16 in the Czech Republic, according to data from the Czech Statistical Office (CSO), published on Monday. This represents 56.3% of the population in this age group.
Among those who have used the Internet in the past 3 months, 68% of people over the age of 16 use social networks. Compared to 2020, the number of users of social networks increased by 2.5 percentage points (in 2020 it was 53.8%).
Of the 16+ screened group, most people in the 16-24 age group use social networks. 95% of them are on at least one social network.
With age, the shares of users of social networks decrease. For example, in the group of 45-54 years old, 60% of them use it and in the group over 65 years old it is only 11%.
Women use social networks slightly more (58%) than men (54.4%).
Data on the use of social networks in individual regions of the Czech Republic are calculated as moving averages from 2019 to 21.
These data show that the use of social networks in the mentioned period was most prevalent in Prague, where 58% of people over 16 years of age used some social network.
On the contrary, it was least used by people in the Karlovy Vary region (50%).
This year, 15% of people in the Czech Republic (about 1.3 million +16) watched programs on pay channels such as Netflix or HBO Go.
Nearly 58% of the population shop online, and online shopping last year jumped from 39% to 54%.
Even in 2021, there was an increase in online shopping – it increased to 57.5%.
This represents 5.04 million people over the age of 16 who purchased online at least once in the past three months prior to the survey date.
