A new survey by Ipsos Reid says Canadians are spending more time online than watching television. The market-research company’s survey found that Canadians spend an average of 18.1 hours a week online and 16.9 hours a week watching television. Internet usage had reached an average of 14.9 hours per week last year, according to a previous Ipos Reid survey. The amount of time spent watching television also increased slightly over the previous year, when it was reported at 15.8 hours. The poll found that men spend 20 hours a week online and women 16 hours. There was not a substantial difference between age groups in the amount of time they spend online. Adults aged 18-34 spend an average of 20 hours a week on the Web while those over 35 are online about 18 hours a week, the poll found. With television, there was a large gap between the different age groups. The 18-34 age group spend an average of 13 hours a week watching television while people over the age of 55 watch as much as 20 hours of television each week, Ipsos Reid reported. The study surveyed 839 Canadian adults online during the fourth quarter of 2009. Ipsos-Reid estimated a margin of error of plus or minus 3.38 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
