Survey on Online Media Use and Political Participation

Survey on Online Media Use and Political Participation

2014 November

Based on a recent survey conducted by Dr. Alex Chan Lih-shing, Lecturer with the Department of Asian and Policy Studies (APS) at The Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd), it was found that the young generations under 30 years old have a higher sense of political efficacy as seen through relatively higher active online political participation. The telephone survey interviewed 1,012 Cantonese speaking Hong Kong citizens aged 18 and over. The aim of the survey was to learn about the association of online media use with political interest and participation in Hong Kong.
