Wireless Substitution: Early Release of Estimates From the National Health Interview Survey, July–December 2018

Preliminary results from the July–December 2018 National Health Interview Survey indicate that the number of American homes with only wireless telephones continues to grow.

More than one-half of American homes (57.1%) had only wireless telephones (also known as cellular telephones, cell phones, or mobile phones) during the second half of 2018—an increase of 3.2 percentage points since the second half of 2017.

More than three in four adults aged 25-34 (76.5%), and a similar percentage of adults renting their homes (75.5%), were living in wireless-only households.
