Did you know that more than 12% of the Aussie population aged 15 years and over live alone and that by 2030 that number is projected to rise to 16% which equates to 3.1 million people?
Choice or necessity
The experience of living alone is likely influenced by whether that living arrangement occurs by choice or necessity.
For example after a separation, almost half of all men and 31% of women live alone. Many of those people might not feel great about that situation, particularly if they didn’t instigate it. But living alone doesn’t have to correlate with time spent alone.
