Abstract [en]

Social factors influence sleep. Socioeconomic status (SES) may be the most important factor, with longer and better sleep among higher SES groups. The reasons may be related to income, education, healthier lifestyles and several other issues. Social support is a strong predictor of good sleep. Also race is related to sleep, with better sleep among whites. SES is of importance here, but unfair treatment is also important. Sleep also deteriorates with increasing age, but alertness increases. Women report more sleep problems than men but sleep is physiologically better. Singles in general show more sleep complaints, which may be related to unhealthy lifestyles and to some extent to social isolation.
