The main purpose of this study was to explore the phenomenon of loneliness through an investigation of (1) selected characteristics of middle class housewives in Lincoln, Nebraska; (2) the frequency of feeling lonely; and (3) various life style variables. In order to accomplish this task, a test to measure loneliness was defined as a feeling of being alone and disconnected or alienated from positive persons, places, or things within the Universe, as measured by the instrument used in this research.
