Impact

In Estonia, the EU Kids Online project has been enjoying a wide media
coverage and has, thus, contributed to keeping internet safety on the public
agenda. For example, the short report on excessive internet use, showing
Estonia as the top-ranking country in Europe in terms of children's
excessive use of the internet, was covered in the prime time news broadcast
by two national TV channels, Estonian TV and TV3     

Survey questionniares

The EU Kids Online fieldwork involved several questionnaires. First, a face to face interview with one parent. Second, a face to face interview with the child. Then a self-completion interview for sensitive questions, with one version for 9-10 year olds and one version for 11-16 year olds.
