M.T.V. Prakash Reddy, Senthilkumar. K
This study aimed to examine the prevalence of online gaming addiction among higher secondary school students in Chennai and Thiruvalluvar, Tamil Nadu. Data was collected through a normative survey method, and an online gaming addiction tool was developed and employed for the investigation. The sample comprised 780 higher secondary school students. The collected data were analyzed using measures of central tendency (mean), dispersion (standard deviation - S.D), and inferential statistics (t-value). The findings reveal that the level of online gaming addiction among higher secondary school students in the region falls within an average range. When considering gender, the study found significant differences in the prevalence of online gaming addiction, with implications for targeted interventions. However, the addiction rates did not differ significantly across localities, suggesting that this issue is consistent across Chennai and Thiruvalluvar.
