Mobile Gamer Growth in North America, by Age, 2020 (% change vs. prior year)


Data is from the January 2021 NPD Group and Sensor Tower report titled "Deconstructing Mobile & Tablet Gaming." 5,000 mobile gamers ages 2+ in Canada and the US were surveyed during October 2020. Adult respondents ages 18+ were recruited for participation directly and completed the survey based on their own habits; children/teens ages 2-17 were recruited via parent surrogates with instructions to have the child/teen complete the survey themselves to the extent that they were able. Respondents qualified as mobile gamers if they owned or had access to a qualifying device and had used it to play a game in the past 30 days.
