Mobile Phone Responses

Does anyone know, in general, whether Prolific users respond to surveys via phone, tablet, or desktop most often?
I’m trying to decide whether to optimize my Qualtrics survey design to computer vs mobile device respondents.
Thank you!

It’s definitely the majority desktop, but a non-trivial amount of users are on mobile too. So I think it’s best to design studies to be compatible on all devices where possible, or restrict to compatible devices only (which you can read about here).

A recent study we did had no device restrictions, and 81% of participants used desktop vs. 19% on mobile. But this was just a random N=500 sample so not necessarily representative.

Let me know if I can help further :grinning:
