Device access 29 August 2019 The Establishment Survey considers devices on a household level, so if any member of a household owns a device, then every member of that household is considered to have access. The one exception to this is mobile phones (including smartphones), which are considered to be individual devices, so if a household member owns a mobile phone, other members of the household are not considered to have access. For consistency, these data are for individuals. *Any computer includes laptop and desktop PCs and Macs as well as any notebooks or tablets, e.g. iPads, but not mobile phones. Note: The number of UK households declined from 28.58m in Q1 2019 to 28.12m in Q2 2019. UK household estimates are taken directly from UK Government figures. These were previously reported by the Ministry for Housing, Communities & National Government; from 2019, they have been reported by the Office for National Statistics, which has lower growth in its forecasts.
