What The Study Did: In this study of more than 429,000 U.S. adults, the prevalence of short and long sleep duration was persistently higher among Black individuals during the 15-year study period. The disparities in short sleep duration were highest for Black women, Black individuals with middle or high income, and young and middle-aged Black adults, which may be associated with health disparities.

Authors: Harlan M. Krumholz, M.D., S.M., of Yale New Haven Hospital in New Haven, Connecticut, is the corresponding author.
