how is texting, etc. categorized?


How are ATUS responses related to texting/mobile phone use categorized?

I’d assumed at first that texting, for instance, would go under computer use, but I’m wondering if texting would end up under ‘telephone calls’ somehow.

Thanks for any insights into this!


This is a good question. As page 52 of the ATUS User’s Guide suggests, texting is categorized under the phone calls category.


Wow I somehow missed that; thanks so much!
