Survey on Sleep PDF Print E-mail
Written by Ipsos MORI   
03 Sep 2007

15 August 2007 - Ipsos MORI and Ben Schott of 'Schott's Almanac' have teamed up to explore the British public's attitudes towards sleep.


Topline Results
  • Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative quota sample of 1,005 adults in Great Britain aged 16+
  • Interviews were conducted by telephone between 3rd and 5th August 2007
  • Data are weighted to match the profile of the population
  • Where percentages do not sum to 100, this may be due to computer rounding, the exclusion of "don't know" categories, or multiple answers. Throughout the volume, an asterisk (*) denotes any value of less than half a per cent
  • Unless otherwise stated, results are based on all respondents (1,005)
