Sleep Doctor Survey Reveals Half of Full-Time Workers Are Not Getting Enough Sleep


Workers are suffering from insufficient sleep due to family responsibilities, workplace stress, and household chores

SEATTLE, June 14, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Sleep Doctor, the leading online source for sleep health, improvement, and education, has published a recent survey report examining the relationship between sleep and work. The report also provides insights into the sleep disparities between men and women. In May, Sleep Doctor surveyed 1,250 full-time workers in the United States.  

"Most adults should get 7-8 hours of sleep per night. The optimal sleep quantity is determined by how rested one feels upon waking and the ability to wake easily without an alarm," says Dr. Nilong Vyas, Pediatrician, Public Health Specialist, and Board-Certified Sleep Expert.

  

According to the survey, 49 percent of full-time workers are not getting enough sleep. This issue is more prevalent among women, with 55 percent reporting insufficient sleep compared to 45 percent of men. On average, workers sleep six and a half hours per night. Specifically, 5 percent sleep for nine hours or more, 20 percent achieve eight hours, 29 percent get seven hours, 27 percent manage six hours, 12 percent attain five hours, and 6 percent get four hours or less.

"Most adults should get 7-8 hours of sleep per night. The optimal sleep quantity is determined by how rested one feels upon waking and the ability to wake easily without an alarm," says Dr. Nilong Vyas, Pediatrician, Public Health Specialist, and Board-Certified Sleep Expert.

Survey findings also reveal the primary reasons workers do not get enough sleep, including family duties, work stress, and household chores. Among the workers surveyed, 37 percent are dissatisfied with their quality of sleep, 45 percent are satisfied, and 18 percent feel neutral. Notably, only 31 percent of men express dissatisfaction with their sleep, compared to 43 percent of women. Those who are satisfied with their sleep cite factors such as mattress quality, regular exercise, and minimal work stress.

This survey was commissioned by Sleep Doctor and conducted online via the survey platform Pollfish. It launched on May 9, 2024, and 1,250 full-time U.S. workers completed the full survey.
