Description: Digital media use has become a core component of life today. Across fields, researchers have sought to understand the effects, both positive and negative, that this behaviour can enable. Before conclusions can be made about these effects, we must first have confidence in the measures used to produce the data that enable their assessment. While self-report measures are predominantly used to quantify media use, the adoption of passive, data-intensive approaches to measuring media use has afforded researchers the ability to test how self-reported media use aligns with actual use patterns. The purpose of this meta-analysis, therefore, is to develop a deeper understanding of the convergent validity of self-report measures for digital media use.
