Date:3/8/2010

sc">
  • Asians are the least likely (9%) to say that they "rarely" or "never" have a good night's sleep, compared with 20% of Whites, 18% of Blacks/African-Americans and 14% of Hispanics.
  • The poll shows that Asians are more than twice as likely to use the Internet every night in comparison to any other group (51% versus 22% Whites, 20% Blacks/African-Americans, 20% Hispanics). They are also the least likely to watch TV an hour before sleep (52% versus 64% Whites, 72% Hispanics and 75% Blacks/African-Americans).
  • Asians report the use of herbal and alternative therapies at rates similar to Hispanics (2% each), but less than Whites (4%).
  • Asians report the lowest rates of losing sleep due to personal financial concerns at least a few nights a week (9% versus 22% Hispanics, 20% Whites and 19% Blacks/African-Americans).

  • While Blacks/African-Americans report the least amount of sleep, they also say they need less sleep

    Blacks/African-Americans report getting the least amount of sleep on workdays/weekdays (6 hours and 14 minutes).  Interestingly, they also say that they need only 7 hours and 5 minutes of sleep each night to perform at their best during the day, which is significantly less sleep than Asians and Hispanics (7 hours and 29 minutes each).
