Women are more tired than men
This article discusses research from the CDC showing about 15% of women reported they are very tired or exhausted, while only 10% of men said they were. And the difference was most pronounced in younger women, ages 18 to 44. Now, the article author speculates that the tiredness is related somehow to sleep. It is a fact that women suffer from insomnia at a greater rate than men. But women could be tired for other reasons - thyroid disease, anemia, depression, all of which are more common in women too.
