In the Sleep-Related Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about hours of sleep per night (male):
Sleep. On average, how many hours of sleep do you get each night?
Possible responses:
→ Under 5 hours / much less than I should
→ 5-6 hours / less than I should
→ 6-8 hours / don't know
→ 8-9 hours / more than necessary
→ Over 9 hours / much more than necessary

What does this tell us?

Based on your response, which may indicate sleeping less than necessary, getting sufficient sleep or sleeping more than necessary, The Analyst™ is able to consider possibilities such as:
Cancer, General

An Australian study of 230,000 subjects reported in 2016 that prolonged sleep – especially when combined with a sedentary lifestyle – increases risk of premature death from diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer by up to 300%.

Coronary Disease / Heart Attack

A study reported in May, 2017 found that those with cardiac risk factors who slept under six hours a night are 2.1 times more likely to die of heart disease.

Diabetes Type II

An Australian study of 230,000 subjects reported in 2016 that prolonged sleep – especially when combined with a sedentary lifestyle – increases risk of premature death from diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer by up to 300%.

Lack of Sleep

Even if you sleep more hours than are necessary, poor quality of sleep can still mean that you are not getting enough.

Stroke

Several large studies involving hundreds of thousands of people have found that sleeping too much (or too little) increases risk of stroke dramatically.  Sleeping 7-8 hours a night and exercising for 30-60 minutes 3 to 6 times per week appears to be optimal for preventing stroke.  Getting less than 6 hours of sleep each night increases the risk of early death from stroke.
