Methodology: The survey was conducted in 10 major cities around the world during October 2006. Over 3,000 15-17-year-olds were questioned; all interviews were face-to-face, except in New York where polling took place online. In each city a poll of 300 youths was undertaken by the research agency Synovate. A sample size of 300 15-17-year-olds is considered representative for each location, despite being a smaller figure than is used for surveys of the whole population. This is because of the smaller number of people in this particular age range, when compared with the whole adult population.
