In addition to covering the degree of financial stress in low income families and the extent to which Transport links affect wellbeing, this reports includes specific data on the correlation of eating alone and wellbeing.

Everything else equal, someone who ‘never’ sits down to eat alone had a living well score 7.9 points higher than someone reporting that they ‘always’ ate their sit-down meals alone.
