The Psychosocial Aspects: “How Smartphones Destroyed a Generation”

At least someone has noticed that Millenials have relationships with screens, and not with people….. or themselves.

According to the CDC, people who are in wireless-only households drink more too!

Wireless substitution data
Twice a year, NHIS releases the most up-to-date estimates of telephone coverage available from the federal government. These estimates, based on in-person interviews, are used by survey researchers and political pollsters to ensure that their random-digit-dial telephone surveys include sufficient numbers of households with only wireless telephones. If telephone surveys do not include wireless-only households, coverage bias could result from differences between persons with and without landline telephones for the substantive variables of interest.
  • Results show that nearly two of every five American homes (45.4%) had only wireless telephones during the second half of 2014, an increase of 4.4 percentage points since the second half of 2013. In addition, more than two-thirds of adults aged 25–29 lived in households with only wireless telephones (69.2%).
  • The percentage of adults who had at least one heavy drinking day in the past year was substantially higher among wireless-only adults (30.3%) than among adults living in landline households (19.6%).
