In the past year, more mobile devices were purchased than babies were born in the world. This startling statistic reinforces the importance of mobile government services.
According to a September 2013 Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project:
- More than 63 percent of all cell phone owners use their mobile device to access the Internet. More than 30 percent of all cell phone owners use the device as the primary means to access the Internet.
- Those who note a high school degree as their highest form of education, are twice as likely to use a cell phone as their primary means of accessing the Internet.
- Nearly half of all households with a combined income of $30,000 or less use their cell phone as the primary means of accessing the Internet.
