Survey on the condition of children and adolescents in Italy (2012)

The National Survey on the Condition of Childhood and Adolescence, conducted by Eurispes and Telefono Azzurro, is now in its thirteenth edition and provides a snapshot of the attitudes, ideas and behaviour of children and adolescents, identifying the changes that have taken place over the last year and capturing the most recent trends affecting young Italians.
The survey focused on the themes of media and new technologies, school and risk behaviour. Of particular interest among the phenomena addressed in the survey were sexting, violence within young couples, running away from home, online gambling and the impact of the economic crisis.
The Identikit of Children and Teenagers is based on the answers given by 1,100 children aged between 7 and 11 and 1,523 young people aged between 12 and 18. The survey, carried out thanks to the contribution of schools throughout Italy, involved 23 schools of all levels.
