BUSINESS INTERNET ACTIVITIES
Aside from financial activities, using the internet for information gathering or researching for assessing or modifying this business's range of products, services, processes or methods was the most common (39%). This activity was most prominent among businesses with 200 or more persons employed (53%). Large businesses were also the most likely to undertake innovation related activities via the internet, i.e. the development of new or improved products, services, processes or methods (42%).
Across the listed activities, the proportions increased with each successive employment size category. For example, businesses with 200 or more persons employed were four times more likely to use the internet for enabling persons working for the business to work from other locations than businesses with 0-4 persons employed (81% and 20% respectively).
By industry, the proportion of businesses undertaking financial activities on the internet ranged from 74% in Transport, postal and warehousing, to 92% in both Electricity, gas, water and waste services and Information media and telecommunications. The proportion of businesses enabling persons working for the business to work from home ranged from 16% in both the Agriculture, forestry and fishing and Other services industries to 60% in the Financial and insurance services industry.
