In recent years, activities have become more important in political activities and participation in policies. Therefore, the level of digital informatization can affect the participation in policy in the online environment. In this study, we examined how the policy activities of the disabled have a relationship with the informatization level. To this end, we analyzed the relationship between the level of digital informatization and the level of satisfaction with policy activities based on the results of the digital divide survey of 2017. The results of this study are as follows: First, it shows that the disabled people have a positive relationship with the digital access and policy activity satisfaction levels such as the possession of wired / wireless information devices and Internet accessibility. Second, it is found that digital information capacity level and income level such as PC utilization ability and mobile digital device utilization ability have a positive (+) relationship. Third, as the level of digital information utilization such as wired and mobile Internet usage increased, the level of satisfaction with policy activities also increased positively. This suggests that the government needs various information policy to increase the level of digital informatization of the disabled.
