Sleep Health in Australia’s Federal Parliament House

Sleep in Parliament BANNER 1200x440 0219

This report describes the sleep habits of individuals working at Parliament House in Canberra.  This Actiwatch study of the sleep habits of 50 politicians, staffers and media people was conducted in late 2018 over one week when Parliament was sitting and one week when they were not sitting.  It found that half of all participants were not achieving their 7-9 hours of recommended sleep during either of the two time periods and some were sleeping for as little as 3.5 hours per night during sitting.
