Does Australia’s media classification system suit your family’s needs?

The University of South Australia is conducting research about Australia’s media classification system and the role of media ratings (G, PG, M, MA15+) in informing parental decisions about children’s media use.

UniSA is seeking participation in its confidential, anonymous online survey from parents or guardians who live in Australia with children aged 1-15 years who watch media content on television, in cinemas, on computers or phones, or who play video games on any device.

Completion will take approximately 25 minutes as there is an interactive dimension that asks participants to rate media content.

Insights obtained from this study will help inform policymakers about the usefulness and effectiveness of the classification system for contemporary families in Australia.
