Teen data resources at pewinternet.org

The Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project offers a variety of reports and data sets that examine teens’ use of technology. These studies are a bit different from our other work with adults. Our studies of youth typically survey both a teen (defined as a person age 12 to 17) and a parent or guardian. The language used in the questions aimed at teens is often tailored to the age group, and because of the additional complexity in surveying minors, the surveys have been fielded less frequently.

For quick and easy reference, the following details some key new data resources on teens as well as highlights some resources we offer that you may not have seen:

Note: The most recent teens data currently on our website is from our September 2009 survey . Stay tuned for new data this fall.
