Data from the 2005 Survey of Social Development Trends - Health Security will be recoded and variables will be redefined according to the specific aims of the current study. Descriptive analyses, correlational analyses, Analysis of Variance, Chi-Square, and Fisher's Exact tests will be used to examine the study aims. Expected outcome: Data from this current analysis will provide insights into the insomnia epidemic in Taiwanese general population.
