Living Alone Linked to Greater Risk of Depression: Study

(HealthDay News) — People who live alone have a nearly 80 percent greater risk of depression than those who live with others, new research suggests.

Over the past three decades, the number of people living on their own in the United States has doubled, to one in three people.

The study included 3,500 working-age men and women in Finland who were followed for seven years. The researchers looked at the participants’ antidepressant use; living arrangements; and psychosocial, sociodemographic and health risk factors, such as smoking, heavy drinking and lack of exercise.
