Abstract

 Background and Objective: Sleep Diary is the most practical and cost-effective tool for evaluating sleep habits. However, measurement errors are common issues with self report methods in medical research. The aim of the present study was to evaluate a self- report method compared to Actigraph in assessing SLEEP PATTERNs in CHILDREN.Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 270 CHILDREN aged 6 to 9 years who were selected by multistage sampling in primary schools of Tehran. The SLEEP PATTERNs during a week were measured using two methods of self- report and Actigraph. The parents were asked to report the SLEEP PATTERN of their CHILDREN.Results: The results of the current study indicated that sleep duration determined through the self-report method was overestimated compared to Actigraph (P=0.001). Parents reported the onset of CHILDREN sleep significantly earlier than Actigraph (P=0.001). There was no significant difference between self-report and Actigraph for wake-up time.Conclusion: The findings of this study illustrate low accuracy of self-report method for determining sleep duration and sleep onset in CHILDREN. Although, self report is a valid method for measuring wake-up time in CHILDREN, it has a low validity for assessing the other components of SLEEP PATTERN.
