The Common Sense Census: Media Use by Tweens and Teens 2019, an update to the 2015 study, is a big-picture look at how young people in America are engaging with media and explores differences by race, gender and socioeconomic status. The study reveals a huge increase in the amount of time tweens and teens are spending watching online videos and using devices for homework, even as
the digital divide persists.

Please join Common Sense for a presentation of our latest research, followed by a panel discussion with child development experts, researchers, and educators, about how tweens' and teens' daily lives are affected by media and technology at home, at school, and in their communities.
