Supplementary notes

On September 9, 2015, Hart Research convened three focus groups in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, among parents whose children access the Internet. The groups were divided by age of child, with one group among parents of six- to nine-year-old children, one group among parents of 10- to 13-year-olds, and one group among parents of 14- to 17-year-olds.
From October 5 to 8, 2015, Hart Research conducted an online national survey of 589 parents of six- to 17-yearolds who access the Internet. To simplify survey administration, parents of multiple children in the age bracket were asked to answer questions about their child who had the most recent birthday.
