Abstract

The present study aimed to investigate the Perceived Loneliness of adolescents of Guwahati city of Assam in relation to their gender and religion. The sample comprised of 282 high school students (from class IX & X) studying in state Government schools of Guwahati, Assam, that belonged to lower middle income families. Multi-stage sampling method was used for selection of the sample. Upadhyay-Saxena Socio-Economic Status (USSES) Scale, Perceived Loneliness Scale (L-Scale) and Personal Information Data Sheet were administered for collection of data. Mean, Standard Deviation and F-test (Two-Way ANOVA) were calculated to analyze the data. Result showed that both male and female adolescents reported very low levels of perceived loneliness and there was no gender difference in the level of loneliness experienced by the adolescents who belong to lower middle income family background. When loneliness was studied against the religious background of the adolescents in the sample it was found that no statistically significant difference was obtained in their perceived loneliness level. Both Hindu and Muslim adolescents under study reported very low level of perceived loneliness. Thus, it can be concluded that the extremely low levels of loneliness of adolescents studying in government schools of Guwahati, Assam, further vindicates that “adolescents are a highly sociable group” (Dickens & Perlman, 1981) because of their high levels of affiliation and acceptance drives.
