Telephone Status of Households

Every six months the National Center for Health Statistics (surprisingly) examines the telephone status of households. The latest numbers are out, providing a look at the telephone status of households in the last half of 2011...

53% landline and cell phone
34% cell phone only
10% landline only
  2% no telephone

The percentage of adults who live in a cell-phone-only household is in the majority for the following segments: 25-to-29-year-olds (59.6%), 30-to-34-year-olds (50.9%), unrelated adults living together (77.5%), people in households below poverty level (51.4%), and renters (56.0%).
