I analyze survey data from the American Time Use Survey and expand the field of research on sleep behaviors and time use in the student population. In my sample, I include respondents with ages ranging from 15-25 years to capture the high school and college populations. Sleep loss, increased stress, and greater extracurricular participation in student populations warrants further research into quantity and perceived quality of sleep in these groups. My analysis utilizes regression models to determine what activities take away the most time from human capital accumulation.
