The given bar graphs present the percentage of computer owners in the population and by education level from 2002 to 2010.

It is clear that more people bought computers each year over the eight-year period. In terms of academic level, the majority of college students, bachelors and postgraduates possessed a computer.

In 2002, more than half of the people polled owned a computer.The percentage gradually increased over the following years, reaching nearly 80% by 2010.

Looking at the data on computer ownership by level of schooling, it can be seen that in 2002, those without or with a high school diploma who had a computer were the minority, with about 15% and 35%, respectively. However, those figures had changed drastically by 2010, almost tripling to more than 40% and doubled to almost 70%. In 2002, the majority of college students, bachelors, and postgraduates owned a computer, accounting for approximately 50%, 70%, and 80%, respectively.

The last decade has seen a substantial growth in computer ownership in general and across all educational levels.
