Generation M2: Media in the Lives of 8 to 18 Year-Olds

Organization: Victoria J. Rideout, Ulla G. Foehr, and Donald F. Roberts; Kaiser Family Foundation
The study shows data behind media use and ownership among young people over the past 5 years, which includes television, music/audio, computer, video games, print, and movies, with even more specified media in each category. It compares media use across ages, races, and genders. It also explores the relationship with other things such as physical activity and grades, as well as people’s purpose in using media.
