With this website, the PRIX JEUNESSE Foundation wants to provide an overview on global scientific studies conducted with/through its partner institute, the IZI.
On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the “Children’s TV Worldwide” study on gender representation, a “condensed second version” of the quantitative content analysis was conducted in 2017 by the International Central Institute for Youth and Educational Television (IZI). Ten countries took part in the study and summarized the findings in comparison to the results of 2007. In each country a sample of children’s TV programmes was recorded representing the most-watched children’s channels or programme blocks in the target audience of under 12-year-olds. On average, 196 hours of broadcasting were recorded in each participating country representing the most-watched children’s TV programming in the respective country. The recording period was between September and November 2017. The complete sample comprises 1,569 hours of linear children’s TV programming with 9,795 single programme elements.
Please find below a summary of the results in the country reports of the participating countries of this study:
5,190 children and preteens from 17 countries were surveyed with the aim of getting a better understanding of how emotions are experienced and shown in everyday life and while watching TV. The research interest was on the emotions joy, fear, anger, sadness, pride and envy.

In the largest ever children’s TV analysis, we tracked gender representation in 19,664 programmes with 26,342 fictional characters from 24 countries. This webpage offers the individual reports of each country as well as a summary of the overall results. The analyses give an overview on the quantitative tendencies in each country. Of course, the results are dependent upon the sample and thus reflect only what was broadcast in May 2007.
