Sleep Disorders Statistics And What You Need to Know

By Richard Morse @insidebedroom

Sleep disorders disrupt an individual's everyday life to a major extent, and healthcare burdens in countries across the globe have been indicating a rapid spike as poor sleep quality and loss of sleep continues to result in a rising number of sleep-related or associated conditions and chronic diseases.

Some of the common conditions associated with sleep-related issues are heartburn, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disorders, kidney disease, neurological disorders, respiratory problems, mental health problems, and thyroid disease.

Insomnia Statistics

Insomnia manifests as difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep, and has been noted as a condition that causes a range of other symptoms and chronic diseases in sufferers.

Sleep Disorders Statistics And What You Need to Know
  • According to CDC, 35% of adults reported not getting 7 hours of sleep per night, which is the recommended number of hours of healthy sleep
  • According to Fortune Magazine, approximately US$411 Billion is lost annually due to lack of sleep and reduced productivity as a result among workers in the US
  • Insomnia sufferers are 75 to 90% more likely to experience other medical disorders such as hypoxemia, GSD, and pain conditions
  • The average sleep hours recommended for teenagers is 6.5 hours, but around 20% of teens globally sleep for less than 5 hours per night

  • Between 4 to 6% of the general population have hypersomnia
  • Approximately 30% to 40% of adults in the US report symptoms of insomnia at some point in a given year

  • Symptoms of insomnia show in around 83% of people with depression
  • Women are more likely to experience insomnia than men, and estimates place the lifetime risk of insomnia as 40% higher in women

Obstructive Sleep Apnea Statistics

Sleep apnea is a medical condition that causes brief repetitive pauses in breathing during the process of falling asleep or while sleeping, and occurs when the muscles in the back of the throat or the soft fatty tissues relax. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the most common sleep apnea.

  • Prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea associated with accompanying daytime sleepiness is approximately 3 to 7% for adult men and 2 to 5% for adult women in the general population
  • Between 24% and 31% of men and 9% and 21% of women reported having OSA, which is distinctly much higher in men

Narcolepsy is associated with excessive daytime sleepiness, sleep paralysis, cataplexy, and sleep hallucinations. Narcolepsy sufferers are known to sleep for around 12 to 20 hours, which exceeds the 8 hours recommended number of hours of healthy sleep by far.

  • Prevalence of narcolepsy in the general population is 0.06%, or 3 million people in countries across the globe
  • Prevalence of narcolepsy is more prominent in some western countries, and affects approximately 1 in 2,000 citizens (200,000 Americans and approximately) in the US

  • Around 16% of adolescents and 10% of adults with any sleep disorder have CRSD

Hypersomnia Statistics

Long sleepers - suffering from a condition known as idiopathic hypersomnia - are among those who require more than the recommended number of sleep hours of 8-9 hours per night. On average, long sleepers are known to clock 10 to 12 hours per night to feel their best.

  • Adult long sleepers will typically sleep for 10 to 12 hours a night
  • Men are more inclined to sleep longer than women
  • Long sleepers have indicated in studies that they can get by on 9 hours of sleep per night, but a majority of subjects of sleep studies reported sleeping for 12 to 15 hours on the weekend to make up for lost sleep during weekdays

Fatal Familial Insomnia Statistics

Fatal Familial Insomnia (FFI) is a rare genetic degenerative brain disorder that causes inability to sleep, which can lead to significant mental and physical deterioration as it worsens over time.

Some Causes of Sleep Disorders


Alcohol can also induce insomnia, thereby causing symptoms such as mood swings, decreased energy level, low physical and mental health, and deteriorate the overall quality of life.

Sleep Disorders Statistics And What You Need to Know
  • About 76 percent of the individuals who die are men who also tend to be non-Hispanic white Americans
  • An estimated 95,000 people (approximately 68,000 men and 27,000 women) die from alcohol-related causes annually
  • Research has found that alcoholism is a factor in 30 percent of alcohol poisoning deaths

  • The epidemic is such that as many as 17 percent of men in the general population and 8 percent of women will meet the criteria for alcoholism in their lifetime
  • In 2019, 25.8 percent of people ages 18 or older reported that they engaged in binge drinking in the past month; 6.3 percent reported that they engaged in heavy alcohol use in the past month

Insomnia is the most common manifestation of depression, and results in the onset of several other sleep disorders.


Sleep disorders are very common in persons with several psychosis disorders, with insomnia being a predictor of psychosis in ultrahigh risk adolescents.

  • Sleep disturbance is common among individuals at risk of psychosis
  • Majority of young adults with psychosis suffer from severe sleep disorders
  • Chronic sleep problems affect 50 percent to 80 percent of patients in a typical psychiatric practice, compared with 10 percent to 18 percent of adults in the general US population
  • Sleep disorders were significantly associated with increased psychotic experiences, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and lower quality of life


Sleep is very essential for an individual to remain mentally, physically, and emotionally sound. Sleeping for the recommended 8-9 hours a night or in a 24-hour span ensures better quality of life, health and wellness. Lack, less, or poor quality of sleep increases risks of serious or chronic medical conditions and diseases as well. Inadequate sleep for prolonged periods of time is known to shorten an individual's lifespan. Healthy sleep routine can be negatively impacted by unhealthy lifestyle, habits and patterns, stress and depression, and also by underlying diseases and medical conditions. Sleep disorders and sleep disruption further aggravate depression and anxiety.

Some actions or approaches can be adopted to by individuals with sleep disorders to alleviate or manage sleep-related challenges and conditions, some of which are:

  • Wake up at the same time each day
  • Get exposure to natural light or morning sunlight
  • Eat healthy foods
  • Avoid alcohol and stimulants such as nicotine and caffeine
  • Limit or avoid daytime and evening naps
  • Exercise regularly, but not close to bedtime
  • Make the sleeping environment comfortable, including temperature, lighting, sound
  • Put aside worry to reduce stress before going to bed
  • Limit activities in bed
  • Avoid eating or drinking close to bedtime
  • Avoid connected devices, TV, and usage an hour or more before retiring to bed
  • Try to go to bed at the same time each day

Developing and maintaining a proper routine and sleep hygiene has been known to aid in treating sleep disorders over a period of time. If suffering from anxiety and depression, physical illnesses and pain, or neurological problems, seek medical help to address and resolve issues, because your sleep is essential to a better, satisfactory, and healthier life.
