The possession of the iPhone speaks of the high level of income of its owner. This conclusion follows from the report of the National Bureau of Economic Research in the United States. Apple smartphone was the most popular sign of good welfare.
As part of their work, researchers studied different groups of the US population. They were distinguished by the level of education, race, gender and political views, as well as other indicators. It turned out that the owners of the iPhone with a probability of 69.1% income can be called high. The iPad tablet also shows a good state of finances (66.9%).
With smartphones on the Android platform the situation is less indicative: only 59.5% of owners can be attributed to well-off people.
The studies touched upon the state of affairs for 2016.
