February 4, 2020: In 2019, 61% of American Adults were lonely, according to a Cigna Study on "Loneliness and the Workplace." That’s up from 54% the year before.[1]

Cigna reached that conclusion based upon a series of survey questions revealing that most Americans (52%) sometimes or always feel alone and 49% lack companionship. "Nearly half (45%) say they sometimes or always feel that they are no longer close to anyone."[2]

Men appear to be more lonely than women. Younger generations are more lonely than their elders.[2]

"Retirees are the least lonely group by employment status."

The most lonely are unemployed workers.[2]
