The study's objective was to compare sleep quality and body composition
between male and female participants. A cross-sectional study was
conducted with five hundred participants (male and female) from
different community places. Body composition was measured with the help
of a bioelectric impedance device. The sleep habits were determined with
the Pittsburgh Sleeps Quality Index that used to evaluate sleep quality
during the past seven days, and the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (Johns,
1991) was used to measure the level of the daytime sleepiness. The
identified variables were statistically analyzed with an independent
t-test, and Eta Squared was applied to find effect size. From the whole
study population, only 12.2% of participants are underweight, 51.4% are
healthy, 16.6% are overweight, and 19.8% are obese. Pittsburgh Sleep
Quality Index is the lowest (7.90±2.18) into the normal, whereas the
highest (8.38±2.93) into the underweight participants. Daytime
sleepiness is lowest (10.23±4.18) in underweight, whereas the highest
(11.28±3.28) in obese participants. This study demonstrates females had a
higher percentage of body fat than males throughout all categories that
leads them towards poor sleep habits, which are mediating factors for
good health and quality of life.
