  1. Answers to questions about sleep problems (n = 1338). The answers were divided into two groups: no problems (“does not have the sleep problem”) or when problems were present the women were asked to grade the problem as no, mild, moderate or severe complaints. The percentage shown for the graded problems are subgroups of the whole group concerning problems, while the numbers are exact. Those with a problem were also asked if the problem had worried them (“no, mildly, moderately or severely”)
