A recent survey found that less than half of Americans (48%) eat dinner together at the table anymore, even though most of them (72%) grew up eating at the table.

The couch and bedroom have increased as popular dining locations at home, the survey also found.

We decided to see if the same is true here in Central Minnesota, taking to Facebook with a poll of our own: "Where do you tend to eat dinner?" The options were "Table" and "Other."

According to our survey, 45% of respondents say they still eat dinner at the table, while the majority 55% say they typically eat dinner elsewhere.

Compared to the national survey, then, more Central Minnesotans are eating dinner away from the table than the national average.
