A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that 12 per cent of Australians aged 14+ suffered from insomnia in the year to March 2015. The survey also shows that 16 per cent of Australian women experience insomnia, compared with just eight per cent of men. Meanwhile, 33 per cent of insomniacs have a Body Mass Index (BMI) that is classified as obese, compared with 26 per cent for the average Australian. Insomniacs are also much more likely to suffer from anxiety, depression or stress than the average Australian.
