This panel brings together researchers that are pushing the boundaries of digital inequality research by examining differences in access to infrastructure, adoption, and socioeconomic outcomes through spatial lenses. A core common thread is the use of geocoded data to theorize how spatial factors and spillover effects interact with the traditional determinants of digital inequality at the individual and household levels. Panelists will also discuss the limitations of existing datasets as well as much needed improvements to data collection instruments at the local, state and federal levels, including FCC Form 477 and the Internet use questions from the American Community Survey and the Current Population Survey.
