Most boys have game consoles and VR glasses. Smartwatches and tablets are somewhat more common among girls, according to the Norwegian Media Authority’s Parents’ Survey 2020.
– “It is interesting that there are gender differences in this area. The differences between boys and girls are particularly clear when it comes to equipment for computer games,” says director Mari Velsand of the Norwegian Media Authority in a press release.
Parents with children between the ages of 1 and 17 have responded to the survey. It shows, among other things, that six out of ten boys between the ages of five and eight have a game console that can be connected to a TV, compared to four out of ten girls of the same age.
From those children that are 9 years of age and upwards, the gender differences increase. Nine out of ten boys between the ages of 9 and 17 have a game console, compared to six out of ten girls of the same age.
The parent survey 2020 was conducted by Sentio Research Norway on behalf of the Norwegian Media Authority.
