Household Use of Information Technology

Are you interested in statistics on household access to computers and the internet?

The recently released publication of Household Use of Information Technology, Australia, 2007-08 (cat. no 8146.0), presents a summary of results compiled from household use of information technology (HUIT), including commentary on major trends in internet and broadband access and use across Australia. The release also presents selected results from the 2006 Time Use Survey (TUS), including the extent of teleworking in Australia and average minutes per day Australian's spend using the internet.

The publication shows that between 1998 to 2007-08, household access to the Internet at home has more than quadrupled from 16% to 67%, while access to computers has increased by 31 percentage points to 75%.
