What is it about?
• Individual approaches cannot sufficiently explain differences in loneliness; rather, an integrative perspective should be adopted. • Urbanization is associated with greater individual loneliness. • Residence in temporary housing was a significant risk factor for social loneliness.

Why is it important?
• We improved the 6-item De Jong Gierveld Loneliness Scale and differentiated emotional loneliness and social loneliness in the analysis. • Our research illustrates how to properly model locational parameters in analyses of individual well-being. • Although situated in the specific context of urbanization in China, our findings draw attention to the need for more comparative analysis involving other developing countries/regions undergoing rapid urbanization.
