Loneliness Scales In Europe And Asia
One would assume that those around the world would have the same exact loneliness scales as Americans. This is highly untrue honestly. Among European adults, only 7% in total report feeling lonely. If we go country to country, we find that the number is a bit higher at 10% for Hungary, Italy, Poland, France, Greece, and the Czech Republic.
However, what brings the scale down might be the lower numbers in other areas. The Netherlands & Denmark report a 3% loneliness scale while Finland cites 4% of people are. Yet Germany, Ireland, & Sweden cite only 5% of people are lonely in their nations respectively. Yet by far, the lowest loneliness in the world is in Russia, who test at just 1% in loneliness.
Loneliness in the rest of Asia is actually an issue with both China and Japan having increasing numbers. Yet the inventive people here have been developing technology that helps to combat this. Japan, on the other hand, has an issue with more isolated elderly people than any nation in the world. These people do not report massive loneliness but do still report it nonetheless. In India, the scale is pretty small too, with a little over 4 million of India’s 1 billion population being lonely.
