Latest report - Asleep On The Job

This Sleep Health Foundation report by Deloitte Access Economics uses a careful, evidence-based approach to convincingly add up the many billions of dollars that poor sleep has cost the Australian economy in 2016-2017. The numbers are big, the personal and national costs are bigger and their consequences should not be ignored. This is the third analysis of the extent and costs of inadequate sleep commissioned since 2013.
