2.3 PATTERNS OF INTERNET ACCESS IN AUSTRALIA, 2006
The ABS released a publication on patterns of Internet access by households and individuals in Australia using the 2006 Census of Population and Housing data on 29 November 2007 (Patterns of Internet Access in Australia, 2006 - ABS cat.no. 8146.0.55.001). This study was based on an in-depth analysis of the census data from a spatial as well as socio-demographic perspectives. The paper examined the spatial distribution of Internet access by households along with the influence of socioeconomic and other variables such as household income, family and household characteristics, education level, occupation, labour force status and indigenity, on connectivity. Both cross-tabular analysis and regression modelling were used in the study. Where possible, comparisons were made with Census 2001 and other related survey data.
