Loneliness is one of the fastest growing problems in the world causing further problems both physical and psychological. In many countries, especially the more communal ones, it's even a taboo subject and generally denied - making things worse.

I tried to search for a proper and global source for a bigger quiz on the topic. There was very little to go by that wasn't behind paywalls and passwords. If you find one, link it up / make a quiz.

In studies where people had been asked "Do you feel lonely" and where "often / very often" were counted as % of population, in the UK, the percentage 2019 was a little over 30% by average (arranged by age groups where the amount of loneliness was 30-40%, source: BBC). In the US, the amount of loneliness felt by people was almost 50% in 2018 (multiple sources via a search engine).

There was also a study where 1 person households (percentage of population) were counted. Their loneliness listing: 1.Sweden 47%, 2.UK 34%, 3.Japan 31%, 4.Italy, 5.USA, 6.Canada, 7.Russia, 8.South Africa, 9.Kenya, 10.Brazil.

Studies and interviews also showed that people in communal societies have a 'secret' loneliness that being a taboo subject due to society values.
