Results generated by Censuswide, on behalf of MyFilmClub, state that 16-24 year olds contributed the most (22%) to this 13% of the British population who always feel isolated on a daily basis. The 25-34 year olds made up the second highest proportion, contributing towards 18% of the overall isolation statistic. Interestingly, only 5% of the over 55s did.
Britain’s loneliness epidemic, which until now is primarily seen as an issue for the older generation, is also highlighted in the result that 40% of 16-24 year olds admit to finding that they struggle to find methods of socialising that appeal to them compared top 13% of those aged 55+.
