What age group is more likely to be short on sleep in the workplace?

  • They were closely followed by workers ages 30-44, of whom 31.6% reported sleeping for no more than 6 hours daily
  • Both middle age working groups were much more likely to report low sleep than younger workers: 26.5% of workers ages 18-29, and 21.7% of workers over the age of 65 said they slept for 6 hours or less per night.
