Almost every third Norwegian feels lonely, while two thirds miss more contact with other people.

The proportion of those who miss more contact (66%) is 10 percentage points higher than in October and 18 percentage points higher than in September, according to a survey by Opinion.

“We miss each other more than ever. In all parts of the country and at all ages, most people are characterized by a lack of more contact with others,” senior adviser Nora Clausen in Opinion said.

The proportion of those who feel lonely has increased by 6 percentage points to 32% since October.

Among those under 25, half state that they feel lonely.

A total of 26,700 Norwegians were asked if they feel lonely, while 11,500 were asked if they missed more contact with others.
