Supplementary notes

Note: Change since 2010 may be understated due to a change in the way in which the question was asked. In 2008 and 2010 the Ofcom asked respondents to classify whether they had “ever” used their mobile phone for activities; in 2011 "Ofcom research" simply asked what activities they used their mobile phone for.
