Objective: To evaluate whether the strength of the association between sleep deprivation and negative outcomes varies according to the amount of sleep achieved by adolescents. Methods: 2011 Youth Risk Behavior Survey data of high school students (n=15,364) were analyzed. Associations were examined on weighted data using multivariate logistic regression. Thirteen outcomes were examined, ranging from weapon carrying to obesity. The primary independent variable was a self-reported measure of the average number of hours slept at night. Results: Relative to sleeping 8 or more hours, participants who reported sleeping fewer hours per night were at an increased risk of a variety of negative behavioral and health-related outcomes. For each of the 13 outcomes considered, those who slept less than 5 hours per night were significantly more likely to report negative outcomes (adjusted odds ratios ranging from 1.38 - 3.33; p<0.05 across all models) relative to sleeping 8 or more hours. Conclusions: Among U.S. high school students, getting fewer than 8 hours of sleep is significantly associated with a variety of negative outcomes, and this association is particularly pronounced for students experiencing more extreme forms of sleep deprivation.
