Abstract

The primary objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between neighborhood stigma and sleep in a sample of low-income housing residents in New York City. Data were derived from the NYC Low-Income Housing, Neighborhoods, and Health Study (N = 120). Adults living in low-income housing completed a survey consisting of measures of neighborhood stigma, sleep quality, and sleep duration. Neighborhood stigma and sleep were self-reported. Associations between neighborhood stigma and sleep health were analyzed using generalized linear models with cluster variance estimation. Multivariable models adjusted for age, gender, race/ethnicity, income, education, employment status, obesity, the census block percentage of non-Hispanic black residents, and the census block percentage median household income. Results indicate that a reported negative media perception of the neighborhood was negatively associated with sleep quality and duration (p < 0.01). However, additional research is needed to explore neighborhood stigma as it relates to sleep
