  |  June 26, 2009   |  Comments

The Internet population is up everywhere except the U.K.

The population of active Internet users in the 10 countries tracked by Nielsen Online went up almost across the board.

The United Kingdom was the one country where the number of Internet users decreased, which dipped only slightly, at the rate of half a percent between April and May.

In the other nine countries tracked by Nielsen Online, the number of active Internet users increased between half a percent and almost 6 percent in the same period. Brazil increased by 0.42 percent. France showed the greatest increase with 5.57 percent growth in active Internet population in May.

Nielsen Online uses a sampling methodology applied worldwide, which allows for data aggregation on a regional and global basis. Active Internet users are derived from the number of users who have logged on in the previous 30 days.
