* The original survey question was: "I’d now like to ask you some questions about social media (DESCRIPTION OF SOCIAL MEDIA). Do you have a social media profile or account on any sites or apps?"
** The most recent survey was carried out November to December 2016.
*** n (2010) = 1,489; n (2011) = 1,369; n (2012) = 1,381; n (2013) = 1,272; n (2014) = 1,609; n (2015) = 1,458.
