Oxford Internet Survey (OxIS) research is designed to offer detailed insights into the influence of the Internet on everyday life in Britain. Launched in 2003 by the Oxford Internet Institute, OxIS is an authoritative source of information about Internet access, use and attitudes. At the launch of the OxIS 2011 Report we will be presenting almost a decade’s worth of survey data on changing Internet use and attitudes in Britain.
Surveys have already been undertaken in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011 of nationally representative random samples of 2000 people in the UK. By comparing different datasets over time, careful predictions can be made about how the Internet is affecting our society. The OxIS 2011 Report (PDF, 3.1MB) focuses on the use of web 2.0 and mobile applications, the rise of social networking sites, and the quality of people’s ICT experiences. The politics and government sections have been extended to understand how the Internet contributes to political participation and personal efficacy.
OxIS benefits from active sponsoring and support from the British Library, ITV, Nominet Trust, O2 and Ofcom.
