Data visualisation: Sleep difficulties

This visualisation allows you to explore HBSC's data for young people who report difficulties sleeping at least once per week.

Insufficient sleep, inadequate sleep quality and irregular sleep patterns during adolescence are associated with daytime tiredness, risk taking behaviours, negative moods, stimulant use, poor academic performance and increased risks from unintentional injuries. Lack of sufficient sleep during this critical developmental stage has also been linked to poor self-rated health and depression.
