    Québec Household Internet Access Survey

    Type of survey

    Cross-sectional survey, regional estimates.

    Targeted population

    The 2012 edition targets all Québec households, excluding collective households and those living on Indian reserves and on Cree and Inuit territories (Kativik and Eeyou Istchee territories) in northern Québec.

    A component on individual Internet use was added in the 2016 edition, therefore that edition of the survey has two target populations. The target population for the “access” component is the same as in 2012, while the “use” component targets individuals aged 16 and over living in eligible households.
