While observing modern-day media or mode of communication's influence over sleep, the survey found 67.1 percent of people chat on mobile phones or computers before going to sleep, and 43.2 percent of those going to bed after midnight do so due to online gaming and messaging.

The survey noticed a trend in which people in south and west China tend to sleep better than those in the north and east. It found bachelors are sleeping better than the married, said Qin Xiaoming, vice head of the Chinese Medical Doctor Association, which sponsored the report.
