Kids and mobiles: How Australian children are using mobile phones – interactive report

26 November 2019

This study found that almost half of all children now own or have access to a mobile phone.

This report is published by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).

This report provides statistics on how children aged 6-13 years old are accessing mobile phones and the types of activities they use them for.

It is an interactive report, which can be used to compare trends over time and by age, gender, socioeconomic status.

The findings highlight how mobile phones are widespread among children today and are being used to play games, take photos and use apps - more so than for keeping in touch with parents.

Access the report via the ACMA website.
