National Sleep Foundation’s 2018 Sleep in America® Poll Shows Americans Failing to Prioritize Sleep

Home >> Media Center >> Press Release >> National Sleep Foundation’s 2018 Sleep in America® Poll Shows Americans Failing to Prioritize Sleep

Foundation’s quarterly Sleep Health Index ® showed little change in the nation’s sleep health, with the overall score remaining at a strong 76 out of 100.  The greatest shift was seen in one aspect of sleep duration, with American adults getting more weekday sleep. The Sleep Health Index results are not all good, though, as sleep quality remains at a disappointing 67.

The National Sleep Foundation kicks off its annual Sleep Awareness Week March 11, 2018. In addition, the National Sleep Foundation is offering new resources for your sleep health at sleepfoundation.org/SAW

About the Sleep in America ® Poll

The Sleep in America poll is the National Sleep Foundation’s premier annual review of specific sleep topics in America.  The poll was first conducted in 1991 and was most recently produced by Langer Research Associates. The 2018 poll, administered alongside the Sleep Health Index, explored how people prioritize their sleep, and how they understand its importance in accomplishing daily activities (doi: 10.1016/j.sleh.2018.02.007).
