BALEARIC residents bought more online than anyone else in Spain, says a new study.
A total of 50.2 per cent of the islanders carried out online purchases, seven points above the national average, while the use of electronic administration has grown stronger amongst both citizens and companies, and has become the preferred option to obtain public information.
The data was released by the Spanish Information Society in a report, which also shows that services, such as public transport tickets and car rentals, holiday accommodation and clothing are the most purchased items.
In 2014, eight out of 10 homes had an internet connection, and 84 per cent of Balearic residents have used the internet in the past month.
The use of online banking services by companies has increased by 1.3 per cent compared to the previous year.
Companies have also increased their presence on social media by 35.5 per cent.
