Incidence and frequency of lucid dreams in a Swiss junior college student sample

Tamara Janina Fingerlin


This study was conducted to inspect the incidence of lucid dreaming within a Swiss junior college student sample. Out of 214 participants, 50% had experienced at least one lucid dream, while 26% were frequent lucid dreamers with a lucid dream frequency equal to or higher than once a month. The term lucid dream or the German synonym “Klartraum” was known by 31%. Lucid dream frequency and dream recall frequency were significantly related. The results imply a prevalence of lucid dreams similar to that in Germany. For further comparison a representative Swiss study would be needed.
