More than half of UK homes has a PC, according to the latest Government stats.

According to the 2002 General Household Survey (GHS) published today, 54 per cent of UK homes had a PC, up from 34 per cent in 1998.

While 99 per cent of people had a phone in their home.

The GHS also found that almost a third of households (32 per cent) had a DVD player.

Another gem from this somewhat out-of-date snapshot of British life is the fact that seventy-two per cent of women aged 16 to 49 used at least one form of contraception during 2002, a figure that has remained relatively constant since the mid-1980s.

Which is nice. ®
