ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between Weekday and weekend sleep duration and perceived stress and suicidal ideation. Data was obtained by the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey seventh (2017) using a rolling sampling design involving a complex, stratified, multistage, and probability-cluster survey of civilian non-institutionalized Korean residents. We conducted a cross-section study of a total of 5,818 subjects (2,579 males and 3,239 females) who were aged 18 years and older. We found that the odds of poor perceived stress in groups with weekday sleep duration of six hours or less was 1.348 times higher (p-value: 0.001) than that in groups with sleep duration of 7-8 hours on weekday. The odds of suicidal ideation in groups with weekend sleep duration of six hours or less was 1.682 times higher (p-value: 0.029) than that in groups with sleep duration of 7-8 hours on weekend. Poor sleep duration appears to be closely associated with poor perceived stress and suicidal ideation. Based on the findings of our study, effective prevention and intervention programs should be established with improving their awareness of the serious consequences of sleep problems educating reasonable working time and pay close attention to those who have poor perceived stress and suicidal ideation.
