This month's SA Stats includes a feature article that explores children's use of the internet and mobile phones in South Australia. Household uptake of such technologies may impact on the ability of children to learn the necessary skills to operate effectively in today's technology rich world and ultimately affect whether they can reach their future potential.

Household access to computers and the internet in South Australia has steadily increased over the last decade. However, South Australia still has one of the lowest proportions of household broadband access of all states and territories. In the 12 months to April 2009, 71% of South Australian children had access to the internet at school, and 69% had access to the internet at home.

Topics which have been updated with new data in this month's issue of SA Stats include: Construction; Consumption; Demography; Housing Finance; International Merchandise Trade; Labour Force; and Water.
