In the EU Kids Online II project, data were collected from children and parents via in-home face-to-face interviews in 25 European countries to examine children's Internet use, activities and skills, the risk of harm they encountered, parental awareness, and safety strategies regarding children's Internet use and risks. The project provides comparable cross-national survey data to inform social policies for children's Internet use and protection. Nationally representative survey samples were drawn in each country, with data obtained in a face-to-face interview with 25142 Internet-using children aged 9-16 years together with one of their parents (c. 1000 child/parent pairs per country). Questions were primarily closed-ended, with an open-ended (qualitative) element and with sensitive questions asked of the child in private.
