"Hold the Phone!": Cell Phone Use and Partner Reaction among University Students
Beaver, Tiffany; Knox, David; Zusman, Marty E.
College Student Journal, v44 n3 p629-632 Sep 2010
Analysis of survey data from 995 undergraduates at a large southeastern university revealed that 93% reported owning a cell phone and a statistically significant difference between women and men (95% versus 91.2%) and between Whites (95.1%) and Blacks (87.7%). In addition, Blacks were twice as likely as Whites to be bothered by their partner's use of a cell phone. Explanations, implications, and limitations are suggested.
