Home computers have become cheaper and more affordable over time, and as a result are becoming increasingly common in Australian households. In 2008-09, nearly four out of every five (78%) households in Australia had access to a home computer, compared with just over two out of every five (44%) households in 1998.

In 2008-09, households with children under 15 years of age had higher rates of computer access (91%) than those without children under 15 years (73%) (ABS 2009a).
