Abstract
Background: Sleep plays an important role in human life and health for basic physiologic function. In Korea, many students sleep for a fewer number of hours and use the extra time to study. This study aimed to clarify the relationship between study achievement and sleep hours and sleep satisfaction.
Methods: We used data from the 2013 Korea Youth’s Risk Behavior Web-Based Study, conducted by the Korean Center for Disease Control (72,435 male and female students). We studied the relationship between study achievement and sleep hours and between study achievement and sleep satisfaction. The data were analyzed using logistic regression.
Results: Student who reported satisfactory sleep had higher study achievement than those who reported average sleep, and students who reported average sleep had higher study achievement than those who reported unsatisfactory sleep. Students who slept less than 6 hours had higher study achievement than those who did not. Students who slept from 6 to 8 hours and reported satisfactory sleep had higher study achievement than the others.
Conclusion: An adequate number of sleep hours and satisfactory sleep play an important role in study achievement.
