Danish internet use continues its upward trend  

New figures show a modest increase in daily use from 35% in 2001 to 38% in 2002

Statistics Denmark has published new figures on use of the internet by Danes in 2002, which shows a modest increase in daily use from 35% in 2001 to 38% in 2002. Altogether 76% of the population had access to the internet from home and/or work in 2002 compared with 73% in 2001, the rise coming from increased internet access from home. The news is reported by national daily newspaper Jyllands-Posten.


The data shows that the main purposes of private use of the internet are to seek information and use online services (63%), communication (57%) and contact with public authorities (41%). The latter is set to increase since Danish public authorities are working hard to promote citizens’ access to public services via the internet. Trading on the net  increased from 21% in 2001 to 28% in 2002. Topping the list for goods and services purchased were travel products, followed by entertainment products, books, magazines and newspapers, computer hardware and compact disks featuring film and music.
