  • Public use microdata: 56M0002G
    Description:

    This guide is for the Household Internet Use Survey microdata file. The Household Internet Use Survey is being conducted by Statistics Canada on behalf of Industry Canada. The information from this survey will assist the Science and Technology Redesign Project at Statistics Canada to fulfil a three-year contractual agreement between them and the Telecommunications and Policy Branch of Industry Canada. The Household Internet Use Survey is a voluntary survey. It will provide information on the use of computers for communication purposes, and households' access and use of the Internet from home.

    The objective of this survey is to measure the demand for telecommunications services by Canadian households. To assess the demand, we measure the frequency and intensity of use of what is commonly referred to as "the information highway" among other things. This was done by asking questions relating to the accessibility of the Internet to Canadian households both at home, the workplace and a number of other locations. The information collected will be used to update and expand upon previous studies done by Statistics Canada on the topic of the Information Highway.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    For five days in December 2003, the city of Geneva, Switzerland was transformed into the largest multicultural information and communication centre in the world. More than 11,000 gathered for the gamut of meetings, workshops, discussions and exhibitions, all of them culminating at a global summit on the topic of the Information Society.

    Information in this age of technology moves faster than it can be processed. We are now living in what many have termed as an 'information society,' where information and communications technologies (ICTs), most notably the Internet, have transformed the way in which we live, learn and work.
