Abstract

The variations in the socioeconomic status between different social class of a population correspond to differences in accessibility to all resources available and able to improve global health. While socioeconomic status is now known as one of the main determinants for a good health and a good aging, its influence on sleep disorders is not well understood. The socioeconomic status is a concept, not directly observable but estimated using indicators like income, education, occupational status and area of living. This theoretical review explores some theories linking environment of people with occurrence of sleep disturbances, with different patterns associated to socioeconomic status. A model of interaction is proposed to summarize and conceptualizes these interactions and to promote more research on the topic.
