Samples were drawn from 200 respondents using convenience quarter sampling, self-recording method after the instruction from investigator was used. For statistical analysis, we used IBM SPSS 22. Findings: We finding results are as follow. First, reliable and valid measurement must be used to measure digital divide. Second, by integrating various statistical analyses, accessibility to computer should be raised among group of old age and management ability should be strengthened by education, to decrease digital divide among disabled people. Improvements/Applications: This research suggests some composition of measurement method about digital divide.
