Publication year 2021 Abstract We aimed to obtain reliable reference charts for sleep duration, estimate the prevalence of sleep complaints across the lifespan and identify risk indicators of poor sleep. Studies were identified through systematic literature search in Embase, Medline and Web of Science (9 August 2019) and through personal contacts. Eligible studies had to be published between 2000 and 2017 with data on sleep assessed with questionnaires including ≥100 participants from the general population. We assembled individual participant data from 200,358 people (aged 1-100 years, 55% female) from 36 studies from the Netherlands, 471,759 people (40-69 years, 55.5% female) from the United Kingdom and 409,617 people (≥18 years, 55.8% female) from the United States. One in four people slept less than age-specific recommendations, but only 5.8% slept outside of the 'acceptable' sleep duration. Among teenagers, 51.5% reported total sleep times (TST) of less than the recommended 8-10 h and 18% report daytime sleepiness. In adults (≥18 years), poor sleep quality (13.3%) and insomnia symptoms (9.6-19.4%) were more prevalent than short sleep duration (6.5% with TST < 6 h). Insomnia symptoms were most frequent in people spending ≥9 h in bed, whereas poor sleep quality was more frequent in those spending Subject AdolescentAdultAge FactorsAgedAged, 80 and overChildChild, PreschoolFemaleHumansInfantLongevityMaleMiddle AgedNetherlands / epidemiologyPrevalenceRisk ManagementSleep Wake Disorders / epidemiologySleep*United Kingdom / epidemiologyUnited States / epidemiologyYoung Adult To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:7b6d9ddb-28e4-4065-b145-49889c400a50 DOI https://doi.org/10.1038/s41562-020-00965-x TNO identifier 952918 Source Nature Human Behaviour, 5 (5), 113-122 Document type article Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
