A Deep Dive into Loneliness and Social Isolation in Australia – State of the Nation Report

A snapshot of recent key findings from this impressive State of the Nation research study into loneliness and social isolation in Australia are outlined in the report as shown here.

The aim of this study was to understand the distribution of social health across the Australian population and examine the relationships between loneliness and social isolation and community knowledge, stigma, physical and mental health, health service utilisation, quality of life, and work productivity.

The report found that 1 in 3 Australians feel lonely and loneliness affects everybody. Young people and middle-aged people experience the highest levels of loneliness. The loneliest age group is probably not the one you’d expect!
