Nielsen analyzed over 60,000 cellphone bills of subscribers in the U.S. They've come up with alot of usage stats, most of which could have probably been produced just by common sense.
According to the statistics, researchers have concluded that voice calls and texting from (April 2009 - March 2010) were topped in the charts by Women, African Americans and Southerners in their respective region, race and sex. What these studies did reveal was that there was definately more cell calls and text messaging by certain groups compared to others.
Below are some statistics from the study:
•On average, women talk and text more than men. Women send 601 messages and men send 447.
•Women spend 856.3 minutes/month whereas men use their phones approximately 666.7 minutes.
•Caucasians voice calls account for approximately 647 minutes/month; Hispanics using approximately 825 minutes/month; and African Americans top the list at 1300 minutes/month, on average.
•As far as texting goes, Asian/Pacific Islanders average 384 SMS messages/month; Caucasiansaverage around 566 SMS messages/month; Hispanics bump that up to about 767 SMS messages/month; and African Americans tap out 790 SMS messages/ month.
•In cse you were sleeping the last Decade, teens top the charts with a walloping 2,779 SMS messages/month.
These stats are all averages and you might not be part of the average, but these numbers sound very feasible to me. What are your thoughts on this study?
