This chapter investigates similarities and differences across countries in children's usage of the internet and their encounters of risk. Countries are clustered according to levels and types of usage and risk to determine what is distinctive (or not) about a country, and national contexts are explored to show how contextual factors at country level shape children's patterns of online use, opportunities and risks. The objective is to explain patterns of similarities and, in particular, differences among countries, by examining the national level contextual factors, such as national socio-economic stratification, regulatory framework, technology infrastructure and education system, that explain how and why nations vary systematically.

Keywords:   Cross-country analysis, Similarities, Differences, Socio-economic stratification, Regulatory framework, Technology infrastructure, Education system
