Women underestimate sleep1st October 2009
A study in the journal Sleep has found that older women consistently estimate their sleep to be shorter and of a poorer quality than that of men.
However, a Dutch team from the Erasmus Medical Center has found that in fact they generally sleep better. The study involved 956 people aged 59-79, with just over half of them women. It found that women slept for 16 minutes longer than men and that they also had higher quality and less fragmented sleep.
