Latest research from Global Kids Online

Coordinated by the London School of Economics and the UNICEF Office of Research, Global Kids Online has surveyed over 12,000 children and 8,000 of their carers, marking one of the most comprehensive efforts to explore children's and parents' engagement with digital technology worldwide.

The data collected (in Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, Ghana, Montenegro, the Philippines, Serbia, South Africa and Uruguay) is comparable across countries and has already been used to inform advocacy efforts and reports on national and global levels.

Global Kids Online research evidence was used in UNICEF's recently published annual flagship report on The State of the World's Children 2017: Children in a digital world. Despite children's substantial online presence – 1 in 3 internet users worldwide is a child – too little is done to protect them from the perils of the digital world and to increase their access to safe online content, is argued in the report.
