Sleep Visual Numeric
We are interested in learning whether or not you are affected by sleep problems. Please circle the number below that describes your sleep in the past week:
The score is the number circled or histogram marked (radio buttons below the numbers are used on the Internet version). Scores range from 0 to 10, with the higher score indicating more sleep problems. If two consecutive numbers are circled, score the higher (more sleep problems) number, if two non-consecutive numbers are circled, do not score.
Tested on 955 subjects with chronic conditions.
