Brookings:

Screen time increasingly dominates our leisure hours, too, according to the annual American Time Use Survey, which is based on a nationally representative sample of individuals aged 15 and older.

“Screen time” and “active leisure” are necessarily hard to precisely define. (For example, reading for leisure was included in “active leisure,” but reading on an e-reader could be thought of as time spent on the screen).

Nonetheless, these data show a clear trend—adult Americans are spending more of their non-work/education time on a screen.

The first iPhone was released June 29, 2007.
