Sample Answer

This chart gives information about the number of adults who say they often or sometimes play video games on a computer, TV, game console, or portable device.

Young men between the ages of 18 and 29 dominate the figures for those who most play games. 40% of women admit playing games often or sometimes, while for men, the figure rises to include almost half of the male population.

A similar gap in usage can be seen between ethnic groups with game-playing proving more popular with Hispanic players (at 48%) than with white populations (41%).

The biggest disparity in numbers is apparent in different age groups. Just over 10% of 65-year-olds and above say they play games often; while 60% of those in the 18 to 29 age group enjoy video games often or sometimes. This illustrates a huge disparity between different generations.

Education also seems to be a factor in video game use, with just 36% of those educated to a degree level playing games, compared to 50% of those with just some college education.
