Supplementary notes
* The source indicates: "This division into narrow, medium and broad users is achieved by dividing equally the frequency counts for the 17 categories of use into the three ‘breadth of use’ groups. Narrow users were defined as those ever carrying out 1-6 of the 17 types of online use, medium users ever carry out 7-10 types, and broad users ever carrying out 11-17 types."
