Tablet Ownership Up
According to results from the Tablet Ownership 2013 survey from the Pew Internet and American Life project, today 34% of adults (ages 18 and older) in the United States own tablets. This is a 9% increase from the survey taken in August 2012. Trends in demographic groups owning tablets demonstrate that currently 56% of owners live in households earning at least $75,000 per year and 49% are college graduates. Also of interest, the survey found that adults aged 35-44 were more likely to own a tablet (49%) compared to younger and older adults. Older adults (55-64 and 64+) are currently the least likely to own tablet devices.
Another trend reported in the survey found that among parents with minor children living at home, tablet ownership rose from 26% in April 2012 to 50% in May 2013.
