The Swedes and the internet 2014

An annual study of the Swedish people's internet habits

About this year’s report

“Swedes and the internet” is Sweden’s most important individual survey about internet use. The report is published annually by  .SE (Stiftelsen för internetinfrastruktur), an independent charitable organization that works for the positive development of the internet in Sweden.

The report is based on .SE’s own primary data collection which surveys Swedes’ use of the internet and shows how information and communication technology is used and and affects individuals, families and society. 3000 people were interviewed from age 12 and up.

Telephone interviews are extensive and contain questions about the subjects’ background data, access to technology, use of traditional media and most of all the use of the internet in its different forms. Questions are asked to parents with children at home between the ages of 2-11, about their use of the internet. To adolescents between 11 and 15, the questions are also asked to their parents.
