A Survey Analysis of Elementary Children's Home Video Games
On Kang Hyun,Hong Sook Lee
A survey analysis of home video games was carried out for 1,018 elementary school children. Children responded to a questionnaire consisting of sociodemographic variables, degree of game participation(frequency and mean time), control behavior(eg. resting during games, lightening interior), and physical symptoms(eg. eyestrain, headache, trembling, paralyses) during and/or after playing games. Statistical analysis was done by frequency, percentile, and chitest. The results showed that many children enjoyed video games frequently and played continually, that few children did control behavior during games. Main variables related to degree of game playing and control behavior were sex, game experience, parent`s education, and mother`s activity. In particular, the results implied that the level of physical symptoms during and/or after game differed by lighting factors.
