This paper explores recent Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) survey micro-data on internet use in Australia. It provides a snapshot of the state of internet usage in Australia and compares and discusses trends over time. Further statistical analysis of the ABS data provides an updated picture of the state of internet use in terms of traditional areas of disadvantage. The analysis results show that more women than men are using the internet across most socio-economic dimensions.
