Latest internet use statistics
Neilsen/NetRatings have released internet user figures for September, 2004, for twelve focus countries (mostly European coountries, plus Hong Kong, Japan, Australia and the US). Although there has been an overall increase of 1.3 percent in the number of people actively using the internet, some countries actually reported a reduction in the number of active internet users, which is pretty interesting.
I wondered also how meaningful the figures are on a monthly basis. It may be more reliable to understand trends from a broader date perspective. The figures for France went up a lot - is this to do with return to school?
