QuickStats: Percentage* of Adults Aged 18–64 Years Who Did Not Wake Up Feeling Well Rested on ≥4 Days in the Past Week, by Parental Status, Sex, and Age of Youngest Child§ — National Health Interview Survey, 2013–2014

During 2013–2014, the percentage of adults who did not wake up feeling well rested on ≥4 days in the past week varied by parental status and the presence of a young child in the family. Adults living with a child aged <3 years (48%) were most likely to not wake up feeling well rested, followed by adults with children aged ≥3 years (41%) and adults with no children (36%). For each category of parental status, women were more likely than men to not wake up feeling rested.

* With 95% confidence intervals indicated with error bars.

Based on the response of ≤3 days to the survey question “In the past week, on how many days did you wake up feeling well rested?”

§ Based on the age of the youngest child living in the family.

Estimates are based on household interviews of a sample of the noninstitutionalized U.S. civilian population and are derived from the National Health Interview Survey’s sample adult component.
