A recent global survey conducted by Meta and Gallup has unveiled that almost 25% of individuals worldwide experience pronounced feelings of loneliness, with an additional 27% reporting a degree of loneliness. The extensive survey covered over 140 countries, involving around 1,000 respondents in each country, and took place between June 2022 and February 2023. Loneliness, acknowledged by the World Health Organization for its impact on mental and physical health, is likened to factors like smoking and obesity in terms of its consequences. Interestingly, the survey indicates that the highest rates of loneliness are observed among young adults aged 19 to 29, possibly linked to factors like independent living without family support or job instability.
