The University’s Clinical Sleep Research Unit and bed brand, Sealy, are conducting a comprehensive worldwide sleep study exploring the sleep habits of people across the globe.

The census will be the largest sleep study ever conducted and is being launched in countries around the world.

The results of the study will provide a better understanding of exactly how the world is sleeping, including the amount of sleep people get each night, what disturbances they encounter, pre-sleep routines and, technology use in the bedroom.

Professor Kevin Morgan from the Clinical Sleep Research Unit at Loughborough University said: “Our mission here at the CSRU is to improve the understanding of evidence-based management of insomnia and chronic sleep disturbance through applied research, knowledge transfer and professional training. The Sealy Sleep Census fits perfectly within this. We’re pleased to be involved with the study and we’re looking forward to seeing the results, and identifying trends across the globe. This is certainly a ground-breaking project.”

The study is open to everyone and takes around 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Participants will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a Sealy bed.
