Among adults who have downloaded an application to a cellphone or tablet device, 29% have downloaded an app that helps them manage or track their health, according to a survey from the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project.
The survey found that one-third of adults who have downloaded a health-related app live in urban areas, 29% live in suburban communities and 20% inhabit rural areas.
The survey also found that 32% of individuals ages 30 to 49 have downloaded a health app and that 20% of people ages 50 and older have done so.
Results are based on a telephone survey conducted between July 25 and Aug. 26 of 2,260 adults.
