CDC report shows increase in insufficient sleep among high school students

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.
