New Eurobarometer on the Safer Use of the Internet for Children in the EU from the Parents' Perspective just published

In 2008, within the scope of the Safer Internet Programme, the European Commission conducted a Flash Eurobarometer survey in order to find out parents' perceptions of their children's Internet usage and potential risks they could face online.

The Flash Eurobarometer survey allows targeting specific groups during telephone-conducted interviews. For its 2008 Safer Internet Eurobarometer survey the Commission targeted parents of children between 6 and 17 years old from all EU Member States.

The aim of this study was to improve knowledge about:

Parents' concerns and awareness about online risks

Parental supervision of children's Internet use

Awareness and information about safety measures

The results of this study will be considered in the implementation of the new Safer Internet Programme 2009-2013.
