As of March 2021, a rapidly dwindling 36.7% of households in America had landlines, compared to a 62.5% of individuals who only use a mobile phone. Acquiring accurate location for landline phones is relatively simple as the physical location is tied to where the phone is installed. Nowadays, mobile phones allow people to call from anywhere at any time. That means that the address the phone is registered at and that the user may live at is not necessarily where they are making the call from.
