Derasat Launches Video Game Survey
Derasat’s Surveys & Opinion Polls Directorate has announced a new survey that will map the pros and cons of video games and their effects on children, adolescents and youth in general. The study will survey a large segment of individuals aged between 10 and 18 years in all Governorates to identify and record practices and patterns in playing video games. The survey aims to collect field data on the characteristics and dimensions of this phenomenon, identify causes and controlling factors, and deduce outcomes for future dissemination. The research study will also consider the relationship between violent behaviour and violent scenes during gameplay.
