In social sciences, participation inequality consists of difference between levels of participation of various groups in certain activities. Common examples include:

  • differing levels of participation in democratic, electoral politics, by social class, race, gender, etc.
  • differing levels of participation in online communities (the 1% rule)

People who are disadvantage can find participation problematic and can suffer cultural deprivation as a result.
