Japanese sleep patterns

How much sleep do you get on average on weekdays? graph of japanese statisticsThe company Aisin Seiki recently conducted a survey into sleep.

Demographics

Between the 24th and 26th of June 2014 1,206 people aged between 18 and 69 (and implied to be in paid employment) completed an internet survey, although details of whether it was a closed or open survey were not reported. Detailed demographic was similarly unavailable.

Further information on sleep patterns of 100 people with 100 different jobs is available, as is a sleep monitoring device which they presumably used to collect said 100 people’s data.

Well, I’d hate to say how little sleep I get on weekdays, but you can look at the post timestamp and work it out for yourself. At least I very rarely wake before my alarm.
