Women online at work, men at home

A POLL showed that 34.6 percent of Slovaks use the Internet and the difference between men and women is not particularly significant: 33 percent of women and 36.3 percent of men are online, the TASR news agency wrote.

The figures come from a survey entitled, Internet in Slovakia 1/2005, conducted by the TNS SK agency between May 2 and May 13 on 1,034 respondents.

The place where people use the Internet the most is at work, followed by home, school, Internet cafes, friends' houses, the library and student dormitories.

More than half of Slovak women, 51.1 percent, use the Internet at work, while only 43.3 percent of men do so. At home, 41.8 percent of men surf the Internet compared with only 33.5 percent of women.

More apparent are the differences between genders concerning the use of the Internet for fun: 57.1 percent of men and 43.2 percent of women.
