The group found younger, wealthier consumers as well as those who use the Internet are more likely to own MP3 players: one in five people under the age of 30 have an iPod or other MP3 player, while only one in seven in the 30-to-39 and 40-to-48 age groups owns a similar device. Internet users are four times as likely to have MP3 players, while men have a 50 percent greater chance than women of owning a digital music device, according to the report.
