Chronic Sleep Deprivation and Negative Health Affects
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data collected with the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) from 2004-2006 demonstrates that an estimated 70 million Americans are negatively affected by chronic sleep loss or sleep disorders.
The data collected was analyzed for the prevalence of smoking, alcohol use, physical inactivity, and obesity as they relate to usual sleep duration. Furthermore, the data was stratified by gender, age, and race/ethnicity. The goal of the study was “to identify variations in prevalence of these health risk behaviors by usual sleep duration and to identify subgroups for which these associations may be particularly noteworthy.” Although determinations of causality cannot be inferred from correlation studies, conclusions can be drawn about the possible clustering of behaviors that result in negative health outcomes.
