Overall, more women than men reported such usage of digital devices. This usage peaked for both sexes in the 30-44 age range (36% of employed women used digital devices for most or all of their working time, against 29% of men), then dropped for ages 45-59 (31% for women, 23% for men) and 60-74 (24% for women, 19% for men).

Among the EU countries, the highest rates for people aged 15-74 were recorded in Luxembourg (47% of employed people), the Netherlands and Sweden (both 41%). Meanwhile, the lowest rates were recorded in Romania, Bulgaria and Greece (all 12%).
