Are young Australians the ‘lonely generation’?

According to the latest HILDA (Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia) report, young Australians are more likely to experience loneliness and psychological distress than any other age group. For twenty years, HILDA has been interviewing the same network of 17,000 Australians, every year, to compile results that give us comprehensive insight into the lives of Australians. To help us understand more about what is causing this loneliness epidemic, we speak to one of the experts behind the data on today’s podcast.

Hosts: Zara Seidler and Emma Gillespie
Guest: Professor Roger Wilkins, Co-Director of the HILDA Survey Project and Deputy Director of the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research
Audio Producer: Emmeline Peterson
