Search this Article
Isolation is one of the most serious problems in the modern Japanese society. Although there are many reports about current situation of isolation by the mass media, they could not make clear factors which facilitate that. Therefore the aim of this study was to explore social factors using' a secondary data which has been developed by the project of social capital and health. Our results showed that sex was associated with isolation and younger age groups are likely to report isolation. In addition, lower income groups are likely to report isolation and higher education groups are likely to report isolation. We could not ascertain the temporal order of causality; this is because the present study was cross-sectional. Further studies are needed to step forward in understanding of causes of isolation.
