This was an article contribution by Professor Jean Yeung, Director of the Centre for Family and Population Research (CFPR) at NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. She shared findings from a special issue in Demographic Research on one-person households (OPH) in Asia that she and Assistant Professor Adam Cheung from The Hong Kong Institute of Education edited. The collection of 11 papers analyses the historical trends, the policy implications and impact on individual well-being of OPH in 15 countries in Asia. With population ageing, declining fertility and marriage rates, increase in divorce and migration, it is expected that OPH in Asia will continue to increase in the future.
