Men and adults under 30 are more likely to have iPods and other digital music players, according to a new survey from the Pew Internet and American Life Project.

Overall, 11 percent of adults in the United States, or more than 22 million, have MP3 players —on top of the countless teens.  Pew surveys do not poll those under age 18.

Broadband users are also big owners of MP3 players, and Internet users are four times as likely as non-users to own one.  Those with higher household incomes are also more likely to have an MP3.

The random telephone-based survey of 2,201 adults was conducted Jan. 13 to Feb. 9 and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
