Every year, to honor World Sleep Day, Philips (the think light bulb and technology company) does a survey on global sleep. They have a mission: to help improve sleep and manufacture devices that assist with sleep issues. In 2019, they partnered with the KJT Group to conduct the online Philips Global Sleep Survey. Just over 11,000 adults, roughly half men and half women, from 12 different countries participated and shared their views, their routines, and their concerns. Of this overall number, 62% reported experiencing less than adequate sleep on a regular basis.
The study netted a lot of interesting data. It ranked the 12 countries (United States, France, Germany, Japan, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Singapore, South Korea, Australia and the Netherlands) from best to worst for getting good sleep, looked at the impact of lifestyle factors, covered trends in sleep, and proffered statistics on particulars like pets in bed and night waking.
Out of the countries listed above, the ones where people are having the best sleep experience are India and China, and conversely the countries having the worst sleep experience are South Korea and Japan.
