American Teens

American youths age 11 to 18 average 10 hours per day of screen time, new research has found. That is a large majority of all waking hours, 70 hours every week.

Key findings:

  • Research surveyed 1,600 American teenagers.
  • Screen time includes social media, video chat, texting, shopping and gaming. Time spent doing more than one of these at a time is counted twice by the survey.
  • The higher the screen time, the lower the mental health.
  • There is a 14-hour disparity between teens living with intact families (63 hours weekly) and teens from non-intact families (77 hours weekly).
