Sammanfattning: Although some studies have investigated the correlation between sleeping habits andvoice problems, it is not completely established. Yet, studies have pointed out that bothsleep quality and sleep deprivation can increase the risk for developing voice problems.In order to observe any correlation, the present study aims to investigate sleep qualityand the number of sleeping hours in relation to subjective voice problems. An internetbasedsurvey was spread mostly on social media and recruited 146 participants betweenthe ages of 20-50. The survey contained questions regarding the participantsbackground as well as questions about sleeping habits and subjective voice problems.Voice problems were revealed to correlate with both sleeping habits and subjectivevoice problems for men. However, correlation analyses did not find any connectionsbetween sleeping habits and voice problems among women or the group as a whole. Apossible cause could be the generally low occurrence of both sleeping- and voiceproblems among the participants. Hence this study did not reveal any correlations withgeneral applicability between sleeping habits and voice problems. However, it did giveindications that sleeping habits and voice problems are co-existent among men.
