According to a recent CBS News poll, most Americans have very regular discussions with their mothers. Forty-six percent of Americans whose mothers are still alive talk to their mothers every day, and one-third talk to them about once a week.
Only one in five talks to their mother less often.
Women talk more often to their mothers than men. More than half of women talk to their mothers every day, compared to 40% of men.
And young adults talk to their mothers much more often than older Americans. 65% of Americans under the age of 30 talk to their mother every day. This is twice as much as an adult over the age of 30 who often talks to his mother.
The poll was conducted by telephone from April 13-18, 2021, with a random sample of 1,011 adults nationwide. Data collection was carried out on behalf of CBS News by SSRS in Glen Mills, PA. Phone numbers were dialed from both standard landline and mobile sample.
Opinion polls have adopted a random digit dial system. In the landline sample, respondents were randomly selected from all adults in the household. For cell samples, we interviewed the person who answered the phone.
The interview was conducted in English and Spanish using a live interviewer. The data is weighted to reflect US census figures for demographic variables. The error in sampling the results based on the entire sample can be ± 3.5 percentage points. The error of the Americans in which the mother lives can be ± 4.7 percentage points. The margin of error includes the effects of standard weighting procedures that slightly increase the sampling error. This poll release complies with the National Assembly’s poll disclosure standards.
