The collaborative survey conducted by Meta and Gallup has provided a comprehensive perspective on the prevalence of loneliness globally. Revealing that nearly 25% of individuals worldwide grapple with significant loneliness, and an additional 27% experience a milder form of loneliness, the study offers insights into the mental and emotional well-being of people across more than 140 countries. Executed between June 2022 and February 2023, with approximately 1,000 respondents in each country, the survey underscores the global impact of loneliness on health, echoing the World Health Organization's recognition of its equivalence to risk factors like smoking and obesity. Particularly noteworthy is the finding that young adults aged 19 to 29 exhibit the highest rates of loneliness, suggesting unique challenges associated with factors such as independent living without familial support or job uncertainty.
