† p values of Cochrane-Armitage tests for underlying trends of media use between categories of socio-demographic variables (younger vs. older, male vs. female, complete vs. incomplete family, high vs. low/middle socio-economic status).

‡ The overall media index was estimated by adding up time spent with computer/internet, television/videos and game consoles.
