Nearly a quarter of Dutch people aged 25 and older had problems sleeping last year, reports the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) on Tuesday. That amounts to around 2.9 million Dutch people.

Of the employed, 19 percent reported this problem last year. For people who called themselves incapacitated for work, the share of poor sleepers was 58 percent.

In 2017, just over a fifth of all over-25s slept poorly.

With more than four out of ten poor sleepers, sleep problems hamper daily functioning, according to the CBS. According to the statistical office, this concerns, for example, reduced concentration, forgetfulness or a bad mood.

Those disabled people are more likely to encounter these barriers than those in work.

More chance of problems with poor mental health

An analysis by the CBS has shown that sleeping problems are often associated with long-term disorders, pain and mental health.

For example, it turned out that people with poor mental health had three times as much risk of sleeping problems than people with good mental health.
