CDC: Almost half of American houses not have landlines
The Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention (CDC) launched a brand new survey Tuesday, displaying that almost half of all American households now use solely cell telephones somewhat than older landlines. In complete, forty seven % of the 21,000 households queried have been cell-solely, forty one % use each, simply eight % use only a landline, and three.four % haven’t any telephone in any respect. Accounting for demographics, the outcomes are much more staggering — seventy one % of 24-34 yr-olds use solely their cells. Moreover, renters have been much more more likely to not have landlines than landlords and other people dwelling with non-relations went cell-solely eighty five % of the time.
The CDC has been monitoring these telephone developments since 2003. It does so as a result of a lot of the CDC’s different survey work happens over the telephone and more and more stringent legal guidelines governing telephone surveys threatens to hinder these efforts.
