Samenvatting

Eenzaamheid wordt algemeen beschouwd als belangrijke indicator van sociaal welbevinden en betreft gevoelens verbonden aan het missen van een intieme relatie (emotionele eenzaamheid) en/of een tekort en gemis betreffende het bredere sociale netwerk (socialeenzaamheid). De 11-item De Jong Gierveld schaal is uitgebreid getoetst en daarvan is bewezen dat het een valide en betrouwbaar meetinstrument vormt voor eenzaamheid in het algemeen, maar ook voor emotionele en sociale eenzaamheid. De lengte van deze schaal vormde soms een bezwaar voor gebruik in grootschalige survey’s. In deze studie wordt de kwaliteit van een verkorte versie van deze schaal getoetst in nieuwe survey’s (N = 9448). Toetsende factoranalyses onderbouwen de twee latente factoren. Congruente validiteit en de samenhang met verschillende determinanten (partnerstatus, gezondheid) bleken optimaal te zijn. De 6-item De Jong Gierveld schaal kan in grootschalige survey’s worden ingezet als een betrouwbaar en valide meetinstrument voor emotionele en sociale eenzaamheid, alsook voor eenzaamheid in het algemeen.
