Text Message Use by Race/Ethnicity

When it comes to race, African-Americans are the largest users of both text messages and cell phone voice minutes per month. This is in part due to the fact that 25% of African-American households are now cell phone only. (National Center for Health Statistics)

Hispanics are also large users of cell phone talk and text messages. This is not surprising given the young average age of Hispanics.
