Security Concern and Online Shopping

More detailed individual data from Slovenia enabled the modeling of the causal relation between security concern and on-line shopping. It is shown, that on individual level the on-line purchase is basically determined by attitudes towards e-shopping and not so much with security concern and the intensity of Internet usage. There are also some important differences if data are used from representative telephone survey, or, from the self-selected survey on the Web.
