Netherlands: Turks, Moroccans lagging behind on IT

Among immigrants, Turks and Moroccans lag behind in their use of the computer and internet. Surinamese and Antillians don't have such a problem and their computer use is more or less similar to that of ethnic Dutch. These are the results of a report presented by the Social and Cultural Planning Office (Sociaal en Cultureel Planbureau, SCP).

The SCP can't give any clear explanation for the difference with regard to other immigrants. In general immigrants have a low level of education, lower income and have less skills to look up information. Immigrants themselves named lack of money as reason for using the computer less.
