In analyzing the data, independent groups t-test and one-way variance analysis and Tukey test were used to test the source of differences to determine whether participants differed according to their demographic characteristics. According to the findings, the levels of internet addiction of adolescents vary significantly depending on gender, class level, parent cohabitation status, and condition of the father being alive. The state of education of the parents depending on the condition of the mother being alive does not differ significantly.
