The lockdown has cost us more than just freedom and economy in the last 3 months. Our mental health and sleep habits are also badly affected. Since the active cases of COVID-19 is reducing, we can see the rollback of many restrictions around the U.S. However, our life is not going to return to normal anytime soon. That’s the reason why we conduct a study to find out how the Coronavirus pandemic has changed people sleep habits in the U.S. after lockdown is easing.

iII. Methodology And Limitations
To collect the data shown above, we surveyed 1,015 respondents in the United States on their sleep habits post quarantine. An attention-checking question was included to ensure the participants did not mindlessly answer questions.
Because the survey relies on self-reporting, issues such as telescoping and exaggeration can influence responses. Please also note that this survey’s results do not reflect our opinions.
