Women with Kids get More Sleep?
The British Office of National Statistics has just released details of the 2000 Time Use study of how Britons use their time. One finding capturing attention is that mothers of children under 5 get on average 8.6 hours sleep which is more than those with children aged 6 to 15 who get 8.25 hours.
Possible explanations are that mothers of older children may be more likely to be working as well as having to spend time in house and family management.
Our News item on 16 February 2002 covered a US study of relative sleep patterns and the finding that people who live longer have less sleep. Possible associated factors are that people with active and fullfilling lives live longer and that these people have less sleep.
