Results from the National Health Interview Survey released yesterday showed that around 24.5 percent of US homes have dropped their landlines—that translates to about 52 million mobile-only adults lived in homes with no landlines.
The survey also showed that certain factors made a household more likely to have dropped their land line.
Two-thirds of households with adult, unrelated roommates reported having only mobile phones. Renters were around three times more likely to live in spaces without landlines.
I'm a renter and until this year had lived with roommates, and I'm definitely mobile-only. But my parents are homeowners who were ahead of the curve in dropping theirs.
