    From what I can find, about 50 Million adults. This varies between Insomnia, Sleep Apnea, Narcolepsy, Sleep Walking, Night Terrors and other sleeping problems.

    5.8% of Americans suffer from a sleep disorder, with 4.2% of those dealing with sleep apnea, 1.2 dealing with insomnia, and .4% dealing with RLS (restless leg syndrome).  If the current U.S. population is 308,413,025, which it is, according to the Census Bureau’s population clock, then 17,887,956 have a sleep disorder.  However, one of the conclusions of that study (the study that gave me the 5.8 number) was that the number of sleep disorders seems to be under-reported, so there could be many more folks.
