Wireless Substitution: Early Release of Estimates From the National Health Interview Survey, July–December 2018

Description
Provides data on households that rely on wireless telephones rather than landlines. Indicates trends by providing figures for 6-month periods from July 2015 to December 2018. Includes data for nonmetropolitan compared to metropolitan areas. Telephone surveys conducted using only landline numbers could be biased if the wireless-only population differs in relevant ways from the landline population.
