The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics recently released the chartbook, “Health, United States, 2016,” which represents the 40th annual report card on the nation’s health. It includes a data table showing that the percentage of high school students who got fewer than 8 hours of sleep on an average school night increased from 68.3% in 2013 to 72.7% in 2015.

In 2016 the National Healthy Sleep Awareness Project launched the “Sleep Recharges You” campaign, urging teens to get the recommended 8 to 10 hours of sleep per night to promote optimal health.
