Supplementary notes
* The source indicates: "This division into narrow, medium and broad users was first undertaken in the 2009 report and was achieved by dividing equally the frequency counts for the 18 categories of use into the three ‘breadth of use’ groups. ‘Narrow’ users were defined as those ever carrying out 1-6 of the 18 types of online use, ‘medium’ users were defined as those ever carrying out 7-10 types, and ‘broad’ users were defined as those ever carrying out 11-18 types. These definitions have been carried forward for the subsequent surveys. Individual internet activities referenced in 2015 were grouped into 17 types of online use ever made by internet users. The activity ‘Online gambling’ was removed from the 2014 study. "
