Presenting the first book devoted to the epidemiology of sleep. The book describes a 3-year survey of the sleep experience of 772 randomly selected people. The survey was based on 2 weeks of sleep diaries and a set of daytime functioning questionnaires. We sampled at least 50 men and 50 women in each age decade from 20 to 90, and the sample has 30% African-American representation. Accentuated with 170 tables and figures, this book crafts a unique archive of both normal and insomnia sleep broken down by age decade, gender, and ethnicity.
