Age UK heat map to highlight areas of potential loneliness

The heat map shows the relative risk of loneliness across 32,844 neighbourhoods in England. The relative risk of loneliness is based on the Census 2011 figures for the factors:

  • marital status
  • self-reported health status
  • age
  • household size

These four factors predict around 20% of the loneliness observed amongst older people 65 and over as represented in the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA).
