Analysis of Sleep Deprivation and Academic Preformance Brandon Chu & Rhea D'Souza

Introduction and Purpose of Our Survey

The purpose of our survey is to raise awareness on the ever growing issue of student sleep deprivation leading to immense impacts on both academic and social lives. With this data we hope that we can not only shed light on this issue but enable students to seek further guidance when experiencing feelings of stress and anxiety. Additionally, we are further seeking information on the correlation between students taking math, science courses and students experiencing heightened stress, exhaustion and irregular sleeping habits.

"Teens need about 8 to 10 hours of sleep each night to function best. Most teens do not get enough sleep — one study found that only 15% reported sleeping 8 1/2 hours on school nights. " -National Sleep Foundation

Hypothesis

  1. 1) Students whom are partaking in math and science courses are more likely to attain poor sleeping habits.
  2. Students are facing sleep deprivation and exhaustion due to stress, pressure and anxiety.
  3. As a whole the teenage student population is getting now where close to the recommended hours of sleep per night.
  4. Students who practice regular and routine sleep cycles are more likely to be happy and preform better academically.
"A change in the body clock keeps most teens from feeling sleepy until 11 p.m. or later" -American Academy of Sleep Medication

Demographic Information

We selected the following demographic questions:

  1. Which gender do you identify as? (Male/Female)
  2. Which grade are you currently in? (9/10/11/12+)
  3. Are you currently participating math or science courses this semester?

We have selected the following demographic questions because they enable us to analyze and interpret data collected in order to generalize and record which of the following demographics is further susceptible to a specific behavior or lifestyle. This will allow us to pin-point specific people that are more likely or less likely to partake in certain activities such as self sleep deprivation.
