Although sleep problems affect people across all ages, less is known about the sleep issues of children and adolescents. This study described the sleep deprivation and its correlates among early adolescents (n-927). Early adolescent students were surveyed before or after structured educational activities in health education centers located in Illinois, Indiana, North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Early adolescents reported less than adequate sleep, and sleep deprivation was associated with later bed times, decisional control over sleep, and sleep routines among early adolescents. To address the issue of early adolescent sleep deprivation, a coordinated ecological approach to health promotion, which includes parents and school personnel, is proposed.
