Digest

More than half the UK’s seven- to 16-year-olds are now using the Internet, according to an NOP family survey. The figure – 4 million – is 51 per cent higher than NOP’s last survey in October 1999, and almost double the level recorded 18 months ago. The Kids.net survey shows that 68 per cent of secondary school pupils and 46 per cent of primary school children are now online. Fifty-three per cent of users are boys and 47 per cent girls. Sixty-three per cent surf while online compared with 37 per cent who go straight to their favourite site. Some 13 per cent claim to be using search engines, with Yahoo! by far the most popular. Just over half (55 per cent) are using e-mail.
