2022 Methodology Statement
The 2022 Wake Up America Survey was conducted online within the United States by The Harris Poll on behalf of Idorsia from August – September 2022 among 301 Primary Care Providers (PCPs) and 301 Sleep Specialists specializing in Neurology, Psychiatry, or Pulmonary diseases who practice in the US and are duly licensed, 1,098 U.S. adults age 18+ diagnosed with insomnia or experience trouble sleeping, not diagnosed with substance abuse or sleep apnea, and, if they have a partner, that partner is age 18+ and not diagnosed with sleep apnea or substance abuse (i.e., patients), and 1,005 U.S. adults age 18+ not diagnosed with substance abuse or sleep apnea, who have a partner age 18+ diagnosed with insomnia or experience trouble sleeping and not diagnosed with substance abuse or sleep apnea (i.e., partners). Results for each audience were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population.
To complement the second annual Wake Up America survey – a quantitative survey of (independent samples of) PWTS, partners, and HCPs – Harris Poll conducted a series of qualitative in-depth interviews (IDIs) among pairs, or couples, of PWTS and their partner. A total of 20 individual in-depth interviews were conducted among 10 pairs of PWTS and their partner. Interviews were conducted separately, administered via webcam and approximately 60 minutes in length.
