The three divides: The digital divide and its relation to basic skills and employment in Portland, USA and London, England.

This study capitalised on the availability of comparable longitudinal research resources relevant to the target populations – in the UK, the 1970 British Cohort Study and in Portland, Oregon, the Longitudinal Study of Adult Learning.
