This is a big difference in comparison with residents of other countries, evidenced by the Drag of the Census published annually. This worked researchers from the university of Loughborough. In western countries like Britain and Australia, this number is much lower, below ten percent.

Also, they were asked about their sleep problems. In South Korea have the most people (nearly thirty percent) suffered from insomnia, which means that they have during the last three months at least three days per week bad slept. In the remaining countries, the percentage is twenty percent.

24% of the participants is not sleeping the number of hours. Residents from South Korea and China are the most concerned about how their work affects.
