BACKGROUND

This report presents an analysis of Queensland data on household use of information technology from 1998 to 2003.


The statistics in this report were compiled from four different national surveys, conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) between 1998 and 2003. Information was obtained about the access and use of computers and the Internet by private households via the 1998, 1999 and 2000 Population Survey Monitor; 2001 Survey of Education, Training and Information Technology; 2002 General Social Survey; and the 2003 Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers.


This report has been prepared by the ABS at the request of the Queensland Department of State Development, Trade and Innovation as an alternative to the State Supplementary Survey in 2005.



DATA COLLECTED AND PRESENTATION

Each of the surveys used different methodologies and sample sizes. The implications are discussed further in the explanatory and technical notes. As the range of information sought in surveys related to the Household Use of Information Technology has evolved over time, certain data items may not be available for each year.


The tables in this report cover analysis of both households and persons. Household level data has been presented with the characteristics of household income and Major Statistical Region (MSR). The MSRs used are Brisbane and Balance of Queensland. Any reference in the text to Brisbane relates to the Brisbane MSR. For more information on the MSRs, see the Glossary.


Person level data has been presented with characteristics for sex, age group, education level, income, occupation and labour force status.
