Abstract :This study aimed to conduct an analysis based on a survey performed in 4 municipalities which investigated social isolation among elderly persons living alone. This study was conducted as collaborative research between the Minami-Nippon Shimbun and International University of Kagoshima in September 2011, and obtained sample data from 1,000 cases with the support of local welfare staff members. Although economic deprivation is often considered the greatest risk factor for social isolation among elderly persons, this study also focused on differences between urban and depopulated areas to analyze the data. As the results, the level of social activities and sense of isolation were particularly affected by the level of income. This was marked in depopu lated areas, where infrastructure has not been improved compared to urban areas.
