Statewide, 29% Of People Using Only Cellphones 4-20-2011

A new study says Michigan ranks 12th when it comes to the percentage of people who only have wireless phones.
The report said 29 percent of Michigan adults were living in homes without traditional landline phones last year. In Wayne County, the share was higher, about 35 percent. Those numbers have risen steadily since 2007.
Scientist Stephen Blumberg of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said people with lower incomes are more likely to use only wireless phones.
He said New Jersey at about 13 percent is at the bottom of the list because it has older and wealthier residents.
The full report is available at the CDC.
