The CDC has estimated that about 84 million (35 percent) US adults get an insufficient quantity of sleep. Approximately 23 percent get less than six hours, and 12 percent get less than five hours. Lack of sleep, like many health issues, has a significant class dimension, as a recent report in the Huffington Postfound, disproportionately affecting the poor and underprivileged. Those unable to work reported the lowest rates of healthy sleep. The southeastern US and the Appalachian region were characterized by a lower duration of healthy sleep, and also have higher rates of obesity, serious health conditions, and death.
