Some shocking insomnia statistics from the UK

by Martin Reed on 16 February 2012 in insomnia information

The latest Great British Sleep Survey makes rather grim reading.

Apparently, more than half of all adults in the UK struggle with sleep - and women are three times more likely than men to have sleep problems.

The survey interviewed 11,129 adults and found that 25% of insomnia sufferers had lived with the condition for more than 11 years. Furthermore, of those who had trouble sleeping, 77% reported having trouble with concentration, 64% struggled to be productive at work and 83% weren't happy with their mood.

Why are we still seeing such shocking statistics? How can society allow individuals to suffer from such a debilitating condition for more than 11 years?
