This survey took place between November 22–28, 2018 and was conducted throughout all of Russia in both urban and rural settings. The survey was carried out among 1600 people over the age of 18 in 136 localities of 52 of the country’s regions. The survey was conducted as a personal interview in respondents’ homes. The answer distribution is presented as a percentage of the number of participants.
The statistical error of these studies for a selection of 1600 people (with a probability of 0.95) does not exceed:
3.4% for indicators around 50%
2.9% for indicators around 25%/75%
2.0% for indicators around 10%/90%
1.5% for indicators around 5%/95%
- Over half of Russians go to bed before 11 P.M. on weekdays (moreover, 11 P.M. is the most commonly chosen answer in the survey) Additionally, virtually one third of those surveyed fall asleep only after midnight.
- A large number of Russian residents are “early risers” — they get up sometime before 6-7 A.M.
- Surveyed men over 55 years old who are widowed and don’t live with underage children get a full night’s sleep during the workweek more often than women, young respondents under 39 years of age, active (daily) internet users, divorced and single people, as well as respondents who have underage children at home.
