Following on from a previous sleep fail ranking, this time we have a look with goo Ranking about which times people feel they have failed by falling asleep.
Between the 6th and 8th of August 2013 the survey was conducted, but goo Ranking have still not got round to adding the page that contains the further demographic information. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.
