Working Group Report on Problem Sleepiness

Although problem sleepiness and its consequences affect all segments of society to some extent, the working group selected the target audiences of (1) shift workers and (2) adolescents and young adults because there is evidence that the prevalence of problem sleepiness is high and increasing in these groups, with particularly serious consequences. Problem sleepiness in both these target groups and society in general is largely related to lifestyle, and data are strong enough to warrant directing educational messages to these groups.
