First data from 2000 indicated that modern technology will be a problem for no small part of population. Intensive penetration of information Technologies into economy causes constant demand for a job with adequate level of digital literacy. Labor market is thus considered an environment that can in future not only suppress digital illiteracy but also increase its level. However it is necessary to answer the question how will the population in productive age – various categories of employees, entrepreneurs, sole traders and unemployed – adapt to increasing demands of labor market in this field.
