The following table shows the number of page hits, visits and unique visitors by month to the Department’s website from April 2008 to March 2009.

The annual total of page hits for the year was 65,456,247. The annual total of visits for the year was 15,298,880.

A visit commences when a user, having opened their browser, loads a page for the first time. On closing their browser, the visit is ended. Thus a session can include multiple page hits.

The table also shows the number of unique visitors for each month. Unique visitors are visitors loading pages from the site during the specified time scale (in this case a calendar month). A unique visitor is counted once within the time scale, and can make multiple visits during the time scale.
