Screen time is the amount of time spent in front of a screen, whether it’s a cell phone, television or computer screen. Large amounts of screen time can reduce sleeping duration and cause an increase in sleeping problems (Hale & Guan, 2015). Students either in high school or college who spend a lot of time in front of screens have a hard time becoming academically successful (Aguilar et al., 2015). Large amounts of screen time leads to an unhealthy lifestyle. This experiment analyzed Gen-Z’s screen time in Romania. My hypothesis was that the 22-24 year old age group would have a higher screen time than younger Gen Z age groups. I gathered data is from the report Insights Pulse Z published by the organization Romanian Business Leaders. A chi-square was used to determine if there was a significant difference between the distribution of time on screens between the age groups of 16-18, 19-21 and 22-24. There was no significant difference between the age groups, which disproves my hypothesis.
