4 in 10 American Households Don't Have Landlines

Four out of 10 American households now don't have landlines, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study, twice the rate from five years ago. However, the pace of people giving up their landlines and going cellphone-only, which had been rising by about five percentage points annually, has slowed in recent years, and last year it only went up 3 percentage points to 41 percent of American homes. The study also found:
  • About 9 percent of homes only have a landline, 48 percent have both a landline and cellphones, and 3 percent have neither.
  • Nearly two-thirds of people in their late 20s live in households with only cellphones, but only 14 percent of people 65 and older do.
  • Poor adults are much more likely than higher-income people to have only cellphones.
