Do you have evidence to share with us that is the case?

That would only be true if _every_ place where youths normally congregate was also a Pokemon place.

Otherwise, you divvy up the location into the (for this case) 4 groups based upon combinations of two simple yes/no variables and ta-da you have controls against which your stats can be calculated. No need to look at the mobile phones.
