The older the child, the more chance it has a mobile phone, according to an online study from platform Wijzer. The study, looking at money trends, was conducted among 500 children aged 8-12 (group 5-8) as part of a 2015 information campaign around financial matters. In group 5 (age 8-9), one out of every five children has a mobile phone. In group 8 (11-12), 86 percent of the children have a phone. In 2011, the figure was at 70 percent for children in group 8. The parents usually pay for the phone and associated costs.
