Is there a connection between the use of smartphones and insomnia among students? : A correlation study on students. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka om smartphoneanvändande hade något samband med sömnlöshet hos studenter. För att undersöka ett eventuellt samband genomfördes en kvantitativ enkätundersökning. Valet av undersökningen grundades i att majoriteten av Sveriges befolkning idag använder sig utav en smartphone i det dagliga livet samtidigt som det skett en påtaglig ökning av sömnstörningar de senaste decennierna. Urvalet bestod utav 189 studenter från Karlstad Universitet som fick besvara enkäten anonymt med hjälp av en elektronisk enkät som lades upp på studentforumet It´s Learning samt på den slutna Facebookgruppen ViSA. Smartphoneanvändande mättes genom en reviderad upplaga av Smartphone Addiction Scale (SAS). Sömnlöshet mättes genom Insomnia Severity Index (ISI). Data hanterades i statistikprogrammet SPSS och analyserades med Pearsons korrelationskoefficient samt genom en enkel regressionsanalys. Resultatet visade ett positivt samband mellan smartphoneanvändande och sömnlöshet hos studenter. Utifrån studiens resultat drogs slutsatsen om att frekvent smartphoneanvändande indikerar på studenters sömnlöshet negativt samt att det finns risker med att frekvent smartphoneanvändande skulle kunna leda till ett framtida beroende.
