CBS survey: Israelis don't sleep enough, insomnia worsened during the war

Some 16% of Israelis, aged 20 and over, sleep up to five hours a day in the middle of the week. 27% sleep six hours, 29% sleep seven hours and 21% sleep eight hours or more, according to the data of the Central Bureau of Statistics. This means that half of the Israelis sleep less than seven hours a day in the middle of the week, which is less than what the experts recommend. From the data it is clear that the condition of insomnia has become very acute following the terrorist attack on October 7 and the war. Some 42% of those aged 20 and over who were interviewed after October 7 reported insomnia once a week or more, compared to 31% of those interviewed before that date.
