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.
