New report: Czech children and adolescents on the internet
We published a new quantitative research report on children's and adolescents' online activities and experience with online risks.
The research report summarizes the main findings from the EU Kids Online IV project in the Czech Republic. It focuses on two broader areas – online activities and online risks (including, cyberbullying, sexting, exposure to sexually explicit or dangerous materials on the internet, meeting strangers, excessive internet use, etc.).
The findings are based on a questionnaire survey conducted at 89 primary and secondary schools in the Czech Republic from October 2017 to February 2018. The data comes from 2825 Czech children and adolescents aged 9-17 who use the internet. The sample is representative for today’s children on Czech schools.
