Seventy-five million U.S. adults used mobile phones for health-related activities in 2012, up from 61 million in 2011, according to a recent report by Manhattan Research.
The survey found that the number of U.S. adults using tablet computers for health-related activities grew from 15 million in 2011 to 29 million in 2012.
The report is based on a survey of 8,639 U.S. adults ages 18 and older conducted online and via telephone in the third quarter of 2012. The data were weighted and benchmarked to age, gender, education and region from the latest U.S. Census Bureau normative data. In addition, the results were compared with Manhattan Research's Cybercitizen Health U.S. 2011 survey.
