As a general trend it can be noted that as people aged towards their 1960’s they felt lonelier in comparison to when they were in their 1930’s.
Besides, it is also shown that people in their 1930’s felt far less lonely than all other age brackets.
Almost one third of people in their 1930’s never felt lonely compared to only one in twenty for the over 1960’s.
