SI FOR KIDS STUDY: WHAT DO THE CHILDREN PLAY?

          In December '96, SI for Kids completed its eighth year     sponsoring an omnibus survey among children.  Research is     conducted four times a year on a quarterly basis and reports     are issued two times a year.  Over the next month THE DAILY     will feature information taken from the August/December '96     study.  The total combined sample consists of 615 children,     including 313 boys and 302 girls.  The sample of 9-11 year     olds consists of 308 children, including 154 boys and 154     girls.  The sample of 12-13 year olds consists of 307     children, including 159 boys and 148 girls.  Interviews were     conducted in Atlanta; Boston; Chicago; Levittown, NY; L.A.;     Memphis; Miami; Minneapolis; Phoenix; Pittsburgh; St. Louis;     San Francisco; and Tulsa.
