BARB reports viewing for Children aged 4-15.
In market research, children are defined internationally by ESOMAR ( www.esomar.org) as people aged under 14. Their parents' permission is needed to interview them. Some countries have specific laws on this, and have higher age limits - up to 18.
Those under 18 years of age who normally live with the assignee as legal dependants.
People under 16 years of age.
People under the age of 18. May also be used to refer to your son or daughter, even if aged 18 or over.
Persons who have not attained the legal age for consent to treatment or procedures involved in the research, as determined under the applicable law of the jurisdiction in which the research will be conducted [45 CFR 46.401(a)].
An accepted dictionary definition of child includes a young human being below the age of puberty; ones son or daughter. New Zealand legal definition of â€˜childâ€(tm) varies depending upon the legal context in which the child is being viewed (see Children, Young Persons and Their Families Act 1989; Care of Children Act 2004; Domestic Violence Act 1995). For this reason the NZFVC glossary follows the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCROC) definition of â€œchildâ€, which states in Article 1, that â€˜child means every human being below the age of eighteen years unless under the law applicable to the child, majority is attained earlier.â€(tm) Correspondingly, the NZFVC glossary treats adolescents (14-17 years) as a sub-category of Children (0-17 years). Items linked to this NZFVC Topic Area aim to cover all aspects of family violence affecting children, but not specifically adolescents.
Persons who have not attained the legal age for consent to treatments or procedures involved in research under the applicable law of the jurisdiction in which the research will be conducted. Special rules and protections govern the participation of children in research.
All infants, children, and adolescents (i.e., all individuals who have not reached the legal age for consent).
