A new study shows that people are more likely to watch programming on television and the internet if they’re young and male.
The study, conducted by Nielsen, found that about 13% of adults aged 18 to 34 watched programming online, compared with about 5% of 18 to 29-year-olds.
The median age for the survey was 30.9.
The average number of episodes watched per year was 4.8, and people were more likely than people in other age groups to watch video, like online games, online videos, and television.
In a statement, Nielsen said the survey shows that the growth of online video and the emergence of social media have made watching TV and online video a popular viewing option.
“This survey shows why more than two-thirds of 18- to 34-year olds watch online video at least monthly, and why more adults are engaging with their favorite programming than ever before,” Nielsen said in a statement.
The survey was conducted between April and July of this year.
