City of Burnside

Non-English speakers - Internet connection

In 2011, 81.0% of non-English speakers in the City of Burnside were in households with access to a broadband internet connection.

A fast Internet Connection is increasingly required for accessing essential information and undertaking domestic and non-domestic business. This dataset indicates how many people in the non-English speaking communities in the City of Burnside have access to the internet from home.

Internet connectivity is strongly associated with the Age and Education levels of the migrant population, and language issues may also be a barrier to access, particularly among older communities. So please view this dataset in conjunction with those topics to further build the story of the non-English speaking communities in City of Burnside.

Derived from the Census question:

'Does any member of this household access the internet from this dwelling'

People speaking a language other than English at home, counted in private dwellings
