Dwelling Internet Connection (NEDD)

The internet question has been changed for 2016 and asks whether any member of the household accesses the internet from the dwelling.

In 2006 and 2011, the question asked, 'Can the Internet be accessed at this dwelling?' and a list of possible connections was included. In 2006, where a dwelling had more than one type of internet connection, respondents were asked to report the higher type. For 2011, this instruction was changed and respondents were asked to report the most frequently used type. The internet question has related to the dwelling rather than the person since 2006. An internet topic was first included in the 2001 Census, and asked about each person's use of the internet.
