V&R unipress published the book entitled “Singlehood in Europe: Rates and Factors Associated with Singlehood” authored by Katarzyna Adamczyk (ORCID: 0000-0002-7612-8380) and Radosław Trepanowski (ORCID: 0000-0001-9304-427X) - Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Faculty of Psychology and Cognitive Sciences. Recent research on singlehood shifts from the previous concentration of negative life outcomes of single status towards a concentration on positive outcomes. Further, most studies concerning singlehood have been performed in North American countries. Therefore, exploring factors related to single people’s happiness and the specificity of singlehood in other than North American countries is becoming increasingly important. The authors utilize the data collected in the European Social Survey (ESS) in the period of 16 years (2002–2018) to determine the shares of never-married single adults in Europe and explore various factors associated with the happiness of single adults across 33 European countries. This monograph shows the review of definitions of singlehood, the rates of single individuals in each of the 33 European countries and across nine ESS rounds, and the sociodemographic profile of singles. It also presents the results of the analyses concerning the subjective well-being and general health of single people, basic human values, and religion.

For well over a decade, in my capacity as a researcher, broadcaster, and producer, I have relied heavily on Alphagalileo.
All of my work trips have been planned around stories that I've found on this site.
The under embargo section allows us to plan ahead and the news releases enable us to find key experts.
Going through the tailored daily updates is the best way to start the day. It's such a critical service for me and many of my colleagues.
Koula Bouloukos, Senior manager, Editorial & Production Underknown
We have used AlphaGalileo since its foundation but frankly we need it more than ever now to ensure our research news is heard across Europe, Asia and North America. As one of the UK’s leading research universities we want to continue to work with other outstanding researchers in Europe. AlphaGalileo helps us to continue to bring our research story to them and the rest of the world.
Peter Dunn, Director of Press and Media Relations at the University of Warwick
AlphaGalileo has helped us more than double our reach at SciDev.Net. The service has enabled our journalists around the world to reach the mainstream media with articles about the impact of science on people in low- and middle-income countries, leading to big increases in the number of SciDev.Net articles that have been republished.
