Do you experience bouts of loneliness? You’re not alone. In fact, a new nationwide survey from health insurer Cigna found that nearly half the country is in the same boat.
The online survey of 20,000 adults consisted of self-reported responses to a series of 20 statements or questions. Analysts used the well-known UCLA Loneliness Scale to calculate respondents’ loneliness scores, which range from 20 to 80.
