Who Has Trouble Sleeping? Gen Xers

Not surprisingly, the generation hardest hit by the Great Recession is having the most trouble getting a good night's sleep. The 61 percent majority of Gen Xers often (24 percent) or sometimes (36 percent) has a problem falling or staying asleep. In contrast, people aged 65 or older are least likely to have trouble sleeping. Only 11 percent often have trouble, and the 58 percent majority rarely or never has a problem with sleep.
