The 2013 Oxford Internet Survey data was delivered in mid-May. There are 2,657 cases in the 2013 dataset. The data indicates that 78% of the British population are Internet users, an increase of 5 percentage points since 2011.
We have been cleaning and analysing the new data with the goal of producing the 2013 Report by mid-August. The Report will include major results of the analysis including new information on mobile use of the Internet, the digital divide, the impact of the Internet on friendship and relationships, policy and regulation, and other topics.
