PR Newswire

ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Better Sleep Council (BSC), the consumer education arm of the International Sleep Products Association (ISPA), released its latest research findings from "The 2020 State of America's Sleep" study. It revealed COVID-19's arrival caused America's quality of sleep to significantly decline.

Read the report.

The BSC launched wave two of "The State of America's Sleep" in January 2020, but then completed another round of research in March 2020, to compare sleep habits during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Themes such as spikes in stress, health worries and economic concerns emerged from the study:

"It's no surprise that COVID-19 negatively impacted Americans' health and the extreme two-month sleep shift is alarming," said Mary Helen Rogers, vice president of marketing and communications for the Better Sleep Council. "However, if we take our findings and help Americans unwind and sleep better during this pandemic, we'll fulfill our role as the Guardians of America's Sleep."
