The Survey on the equipment and use of information and communication technologies in households (TIC-L) informs on the ICT equipment (television, landline telephone, mobile telephone, computer equipment, Internet connection) of households and the use that the population makes of computers, Internet and e-commerce. This is an annual sample-based survey conducted by the INE for the whole of Spain. On the basis of an agreement with the INE, Idescat expands upon the results offered by this operation for Catalonia. The information obtained is comparable with other autonomous communities, Spain and other countries.
The Territorial Survey of Information and Communication Technologies in Households (TICLT) is a sample based survey conducted by Idescat to complement the information provided by the Survey of the Equipment and Use of Information and Communication Technologies in Households (TIC-L) conducted by the INE and Idescat.The main objective of these statistics is the obtainment of territorial estimates (areas of the territorial plan and counties) for the most important ICT indicators in relation to equipment in households and the use that people make of the same, as well as results for Catalonia as a whole for current issues in relation to ICTs.
These statistics are annual until 2011. From that year on, the survey is biennial.
The population scope is people aged 16 years or more that reside in main family dwellings. Before 2007, the population scope included 15-year-olds.
The reference period for the results of the survey is the moment when interviews were held, except:íode de referència dels resultats de l'enquesta és el moment de realització de les entrevistes, excepte:
- for the use of computers and the Internet, it is the three months prior to the holding of the interview, and
- for the labour situation of the selected person, it is the week prior to the interview.
