Survey on Children’s TV Classifications

Survey on Children’s TV Classifications

The University of South Australia is currently conducting a survey around parents’ perceptions and use of the media classifications system in Australia.

The project aims to find out how the National Classifications System in Australia, which is responsible for how media content is rated (e.g how television, movie and video game content is rated as G, PG M or MA15+), is utilised by parents and how effective it is for informing parents’ decisions about age-appropriate content.

To be eligible to participate in this research you need to fulfil the following criteria:

1. Be a parent or guardian of children aged 1-15 years
2. Have the capacity to make decisions about what media content children have access to
3. Live in Australia
4. Have proficient English to be able to answer the survey questions.

Parents or guardians who do not have children aged 1-15 years are not eligible to participate in the research.

The survey will take approximately 30-45 minutes to complete as it includes rating media content.
