Among people inserted into at least two “social networks”, the rate of loneliness still reaches 17%.
SOCIETY – 11 million people in France, i.e. 20% of people over 15, feel lonely, and 80% suffer from it, according to a study published on Monday 23 January, which calls for “de-stigmatize” loneliness to encourage those affected to seek help.
Even a “dense social life” does not protect against feelings of loneliness, insist the authors of the report on “relational fragilities” published by the Fondation de France on the occasion of the World Day of Loneliness.
