Trends in media use by children & young people


This report provides insights from the Kaiser Family Foundation's Generation M2 2009 (USA) (Generation M2 2009), alongside results from the ACMA's Media and communications in Australian Families 2007 (MCAF 2007) and with relevant findings from the ABS 2009 research Children's Participation in Cultural and Leisure Activities (CPCLA 2009).

While the three studies cannot be directly compared, due to differences in methodologies, trends and patterns of media use can be usefully presented together. Information covered in the report includes overall media use, watching television content, mobile phone use, listening to music, playing video and computer games, computers and the internet.
