U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for June 15: Cell Phones


WASHINGTON, June 14 -- Following is the daily “Profile America” feature for June 15 from the U.S. Census Bureau:


Profile America Friday, July 15th. Most of us have been annoyed at one time by the rude manners of some cell phone users. Well, take hope this is Cell Phone Courtesy Month a time for those who just have to stay in touch wherever they are to pay more attention to the highway if they’re driving and to hold down the volume of their conversation if they’re in a public place. Cell phones exploded from a novelty to a necessity during the last decade. In 1990, there were just over 5-million cell phone users. Now, that number is nearly 160-million. That means that more than half of all Americans have a cell phone. Our average bill for this convenience is close to $50 a month. One can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau on the Web at


Profile America is produced by the Public Information Office of the U.S. Census Bureau.
