This study investigates the development of loneliness longitudinally and across the life course, and its risk factors and consequences in relation to different developmental trajectories, using data from:
- a longitudinal birth cohort - the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study (DMHDS);
- a longitudinal cohort of those aged 85+ - Life and Living in Advanced Age: A cohort study (LiLACS); and
- a cross-sectional cohort - the Social Attitudes Survey New Zealand (SASNZ), for the International Social Survey Programme (ISSP).
