Australian Internet Usage

Category : Wisefocus News

Some interesting stats from the Australian Bureau of Statistics website taken from the Australian Household Use of Information Technology, Australia, 2014-15 survey. There were some surprising facts revealed that certainly shows that the truth is probably not what we thought.

 

 

In summary:

  • 7.7 million Australians were using the internet back then in 2014. Today that number would be significantly higher as more people now have Smart TV’s with internet connection.
  • Homes with children under 15 years of age who had access to the internet accounted for 97% compared to those households with children over 15 years of age (82%).
  • 94% of home occupants used their desktop or laptop computers to access the internet, while 86% used their smart phone and 64% used their tablets.
  • While there was probably no surprise that 85% of people over 15 years of age used the internet, it was revealing that 51% of the elders of Australia (65 years of age or older) were using the internet for an average of 7 hours a week.
  • While an internet user’s gender doesn’t play much of a difference, the level of education of individuals does, giving a dominant place to those having a bachelor degree or above, with 23% more than those who are unemployed (the affordable cost of connection could play a big part in this differential).
