† Participants were asked, “Have you ever told a doctor or other health professional that you have trouble sleeping?”
In 2013–2014, 28.0% of U.S. adults reported that they had told a doctor or other health professional that they had trouble sleeping. A smaller percentage of adults aged 20–39 years (19.2%) reported having trouble sleeping compared with persons aged 40–59 years (32.8%) and ≥60 years (33.2%). This pattern by age group was observed for both men and women, although larger percentages of women aged 40–59 years and ≥60 years reported trouble sleeping compared with men in those age groups.
