Mature Market Experts Stat of The Day: Sleep

According to a recent study by Elizabeth Klerman of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard Medical School and Derk-Jan Dijk of the Surrey Sleep Research Centre in England, the mature market needs less sleep than their younger peers. In fact, seniors 60+ required 1.5 hours less than the younger subjects, who on average slept 9 hours.

The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health. Dijk is supported by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council of the United Kingdom and Wellcome Trust.
