Social support and sleep disturbances in male population 45–69years in Russia/Siberia (epidemiological study)

      Objective: To determine the prevalence of social support (indices of close contacts (ICC) and social network (SNI)) in male population aged 45–69 years with violations of quality and duration of sleep in Russia/Siberia (Novosibirsk).
      Methods: Under the screening random representative sample of men aged 45–69 years (n = 1770) were surveyed in Novosibirsk. Berkman-Sym test was used to measure social support. Sleep disorders studied by the test C.D. Jenkins et al. (JSQ).
      Results: The prevalence of high and very high level of SNI was in 15.8% and 2.3% of population, respectively. ICC was high in 7.2%. SNI, and ICC Indices in the analysis by age groups were similar and are not associated with age. At a low level SNI more common persons with severe sleep quality (22.4%) than with high or very high levels (14.7% and 19.5%, respectively). Disturbances of sleep duration remain approximately the same as in those with high level SNI (56.1%), and as with low (55.4%). Sleep quality is much worse than in men with low levels of ICC (20.3%), than with a high ICC (14,1%). Severe disorders of sleep duration in men with high or low levels of ICC remain approximately the same (61.4% and 58.4%, respectively).
      Conclusion: At low levels of SNI and ICC are more common persons with severe sleep quality. The expressed disturbances of sleep duration in men with high or low levels of SNI and ICC remain approximately the same.
