Doc Zone, CBC – â€œFlying Soloâ€
Examines one of the most significant social changes of our time â€“ the global trend toward living alone. The number of adults living alone has tripled in half a century. In Canada, for the first time in history, there are more one person households than couple households with kids. In North America, more than 50% of us are single. It is also the fastest rising demographic in China, Europe, and the Middle East. Does living alone herald a new type of liberation â€“ or is it a form of isolation? Why is this happening â€“ and why does it matter? Through profiles of single adults, expert interviews, and a look at the role of women, social media and urbanization, â€œFlying Soloâ€ reveals whatâ€™s fuelling this trend â€“ and what it means for our future.
