Supplementary notes

* The source mentions that the number for 2017 has a "statistically significant change compared to the previous year, based on a chi-square test".

** Figures are rounded

The figures have been taken from several publications.

The source adds: "digiMeter provides a snapshot view of the adoption and use of media and IT. It is based on the self-reporting of media consumers. As such, the results should be interpreted as the perception respondents have of their own media consumption. The methodology does not allow for assumptions on the effective media reach."
