The article reports on the study, published in the July 2007 issue of "Sleep," that examines the association of insomnia to anxiety and depression. Under the research, the general health of 25,000 Norwegian adults were surveyed twice, first between 1984 and 1986, and second between 1995 and 1997. Results suggest that chronic insomnia may signal depression and anxiety, however, there was no indication that insomnia was a risk factor for depression.
