             Summary .
             This report explores take-up and use of the internet, and seeks to build an understanding of the factors which influence people's decisions to participate online. The trends in internet use show that in the quarter to June 2008, 87 ┬áper cent of Australians aged 14 and over had used the internet, with 83 ┬áper cent of these logging on at least weekly.
             This report is the second in the Australia in the Digital Economy series highlighting Australian's participation in the online environment. It builds on the first report, Trust and Confidence,1 which explores Australian internet users' attitudes and behaviours towards their online security, and on internet use as explored in the ACMA Communications Report 2007-08.2 .
             The take-up and use of the internet and online services is affected by a number of socioeconomic and demographic factors.
