Description

Is there a relationship between the amount of time individuals spend on their phones and their perceived relationship quality? The objective of this study was to find out whether increased screen-time negatively affects individuals’ perceived quality of relationships. We ran a Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient and found that screen-time had no significant negative correlation to the relationship quality total score (see table 1), which was inconsistent with previous literature. Additionally, under the conflict category of the survey, there was a significant negative correlation between screen-time and the conflict component of relationship quality (see table 2). This indicates that less screen time is associated with more conflict.
