    About This Project

    Billions of hours are spent every week playing online video and computer games. This study aims to estimate the prevalence of addiction to these games in the general population, calculate its stability over time, and quantify what influence, if any, it has on mental and physical health.

    The data and insights generated by this study will inform the public, scientists, and health practitioners. It will provide useful evidence to help determine if gaming addiction is an real psychiatric disorder.
