Prévalence de l’insomnie : actualité épidémiologique

Abstract : Insomnia concerns one out of five adults and is severe in 10% of the general population. It is more frequent in women and increases with age. As used in clinical settings, international definitions are recommended in epidemiological studies in order to better compare countries and associated factors. White-collars have more insomnia than other professional categories. A lower educational level is also associated with an increased prevalence and with more severe daytime consequences of insomnia. Health care is poor in insomniacs: less than 50% of patients have ever talked to their doctor about their sleep and less than 20% have ever received any treatment
