The study investigated the factors precipitating insomnia as perceived by low cadre company workers in Nigeria. A total of 200 workers from Nigerian bottling company Owerri in Imo State and Abia State, aged 26-55 years participated in the study. From the sampled population of 200 participants representing equal number of males and females were drawn through systematic random sampling for analysis. A multivariate design was employed to test the hypotheses. The findings showed that incessant use of sleeping pills contributed 43% significantly to the causes of insomnia. Environmental factors contributed 22% significantly to the causes of insomnia. Psychiatric symptoms contributed 16% significantly to the causes of insomnia, substance abuse contributed 8% significantly to the causes of insomnia and gender differences contributed 7% significantly to the causes of insomnia. The remaining 4% accounted for the factors not considered in this study.
