From the beginning of the 21st century, we have experienced a wide range of dramatic socioeconomic changes, among which is the increase in single person households. It is a result of not only of demographic changes but also of changes in attitudes and in cultural atmosphere in Korea. This study examines the significance of the growth in single person households and its implications. To that end, this study presents the living profiles of persons living alone, based on the census and the Korea Welfare Panel Survey. Also, a telephone survey is conducted of 2,000 persons aged 20 and over and 4,000 persons living alone. In addition to these quantitative approaches, qualitative approaches are taken, such as focus group interviews and in-depth face-to-face interviews. This study consists of six parts. The first part includes an analysis of census from 1980 through 2010. Treated both as household units and as individual persons living alone, single-person households in this part are examined in terms of their marital status, age, and place of residence. The second part, based on a telephone survey, illustrates the attitudes of Korean adults regarding single person households. The third part presents main characteristics of persons living alone compared to persons living with other family members, using the Korea Welfare Panel Survey 2010. The forth part reviews living profiles and socioeconomic attitudes of people living alone in different age groups (20?30, 40?50, and 60 and over). The fifth part reports main themes and meaningful findings from in-depth interview, conducted 12 unmarried in their 30s, 12 divorced 40?50 years old, and 11 older persons who are 70 years and over. Finally, policy implications and policy measures are suggested.
