In brief: 1 in 5
Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder and affects many people at some time in their life.
Persistent insomnia affects about 8% of the population. Sleep apnea is becoming more common and unfortunately most people have not been diagnosed. It probably affects 10% of the adult population.
