This data insight combines three years’ worth1 of NSW data to identify levels of overall, emotional, and social loneliness among different groups and explore how age interacts with other characteristics to show which groups are especially vulnerable to loneliness. It highlights the acute risk of loneliness faced by people experiencing multiple forms of disadvantage and the importance of targeted policy and public service funding and interventions to support them.
