On Monday, March 14, the Joan Ganz Cooney Center and Sesame Workshop released Always Connected, a report about the digital media habits of young children.
It has come to our attention that the statistic cited regarding children under age 5 and their use of the Internet was stated incorrectly in the press release that was issued. The study results showed that almost 25% percent of parents of children five and under say that their children use the Internet. Of those young children who do go online, 82% do so weekly.
We also discovered a design error in a table featured in the report. The x-axis of the table was improperly labeled, causing some confusion. The table has been corrected in the PDF of the report, which is available online.
We regret this error and apologize for any inconvenience. And thank you to those who graciously directed our attention to our mistakes so we could correct them. We’re grateful for your interest in our work.
