by Felix Richter,

-- this post authored by Niall McCarthy

These days, people seem to be surgically attached to their mobile devices, whether they are travelling to work on the subway in the morning or drinking a cold beer in the pub in the evening.

Research from the Harris Poll shows that 45 percent of Americans do attempt to disconnect themselves from technology at least once a week or more. 16 percent attempt to distance themselves from their cellphone, email or television every day. Harris also found that 6 out of 10 people wish their family members would unplug from technology more often.

This chart shows the percentage of Americans who attempt to unplug from technology in 2016.
