Penetration of audiobook consumption in the U.S. 2018-2019, by age group

A survey held in early 2019 exploring the audiobook listening population in the United States showed that just eight percent of respondents aged 65 or above had listened to an audiobook in the last year, and were most popular with adults aged between 30 and 49 years old. Audiobook listenership also tends to be higher among women than men, and more popular with higher income families.
