A record 31.1 percent of American high school students in 2011 spent three hours or more on the average school day playing video or computer games or using a computer for something other than school work, says a recent report published by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Also, 32.4 percent of high school students watched three or more hours of television on the average school day.

In the last two years there has been a large increase in the former number. In 2009, according to the CDC report, only 24.9 percent of American high school students spent three hours or more per day playing video or computer games or using a computer for something that was not school work. By 2011, according to the CDC, that percentage had jumped to 31.1 percent.
