Posted: 09th Jul, 2003 By: MarkJ
The latest government statistics show that 11.7 million households in the UK (47%) could access the Internet from home in the first quarter of 2003, compared with 43% in the same quarter of 2002:


Adults that have used the Internet (In the three months prior to interview), 2000 to 2003


In April 2003, 54 per cent of adults in Britain had used the Internet in the three months prior to interview, an increase of five percentage points on April 2002. Sixty per cent of adults in Britain had used the Internet at some time, also an increase of five percentage points reported in April 2002.

11.7 million households in the UK (47 per cent) could access the Internet from home in the first quarter of 2003, compared with 43 per cent in the same quarter of 2002.

Among those adults who had used the Internet in the last 3 months prior to interview, 85 per cent used it for e-mail, 80 per cent to find information about goods or services and 69 per cent to search for information about travel and accommodation. Almost half had used it to order tickets, goods or services (47 per cent).

For adults who had used the Internet, for personal and private use, in the 12 months prior to interview, the most popular purchases were travel, accommodation or holidays (54 per cent), tickets for events (41 per cent), books, magazines, e-learning or training material (40 per cent) and music or CDs (38 per cent).

At April 2003, 40 per cent of adults had never used the Internet. These people were asked which of four statements best described what they thought about using the Internet. Over half of non-users chose the statement “I have not really considered using the Internet before and I am not likely to in the future”. This core group of non-Internet users represents 22 per cent of all adults.
