A large survey of over 2,000 teenagers has been conducted by two academics on behalf of the National Children’s Office and it includes a section on computer games. Key issue to emerge was a significant gender difference in terms of frequency of game play but also that only just over a third report playing games either every day or most days. First time to my knowledge we have had such a large survey on this topic in Ireland. For summary see http://www.nco.ie/upload_documents/Summary_Recreation_ResearchFINAL.pdf Aphra.
