The survey also found that consumers are interested in more data about themselves as a way to improve their health: 65% believe that using a health tracking device, website or app would be beneficial, including helping them stay motivated to meet health and fitness goals (32%), and over one-quarter believe it would provide accountability (31%) and help them stay in control of their health (27%).

This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of Wellocracy from October 17-21, 2013 among 2,014 adults ages 18 and older.
