The questionnaire examines, among other things, the respondents’ sleeping habits, the need for physical contact, mental wellbeing and family situation. It takes about 10 minutes to complete. The survey is available in Dutch and French at https://vub.fra1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_55cS323c6W6ESbj.
“The results of the first survey showed that the lockdown in spring 2020 did change our sleeping habits, with an increase in insomnia, especially among women, workers in contact professions and Covid patients. Surprisingly, a small percentage of people also slept better in these conditions and the intensity of the complaints appeared to decrease with age. With this follow-up survey we hope to gain more insight into whether these sleep complaints persist, occur less or more frequently and what the impact is of the lack of social contact on our sleep,” says Prof Olivier Mairesse.
