Abstract

The hypothesis that later rising from sleep is associated with increased depression was supported. The findings also suggest that a city's depression prevalence could be reduced by simple public health measures to manipulate AST, such as going to Daylight Saving Time (DST) year-round or shifting time-zone boundaries. For individuals, getting up earlier from sleep may be helpful in depression.
