Sleepy Pilots, Train Operators and Drivers
Thursday, March 1, 2012
Foundation by WB&A Market Research, using a sample of 1,087 adults above the age of 25. This consisted of a control group of 292 non-transportation workers, 202 pilots, 203 truck drivers, 180 rail transportation workers, and 210 bus, taxi and limo drivers. The surveys were completed online using a panel of Americans who met criteria for classification as transportation professionals or controls.
The maximum sampling error of the data for the total transportation workers (795 interviews) is +/- 3.5 percentage points at the 95% confidence level. The sampling error will vary depending on the sample size and the percentages being examined in the sample.
* “Train operator” is used to designate train operator (engineer) and conductor.

NSF released the poll findings as part of its 15th annual National Sleep Awareness Week® campaign, held March 5-11, 2012, that culminates with the change to Daylight Saving Time on March 11th. With the change of clocks, NSF wishes to remind Americans to use your extra hour for sleep.
