Newser) Who is getting the least sleep? The Economix blog at the New York Times takes note of a list from the National Health Interview Survey:
6h57m Home Health Aides
7h1m Police Officers
7h2m Physicians, Paramedics
7h3m Social Workers
7h3m Computer Programmers
7h5m Financial Analysts
7h7m Plant Operators
That's right, economists. You'll also see the occupations that get the most sleep, led by ... forest loggers.

well I'm neither and I'm very sleep deprived...I don't see any freelance writers on that list
There is only 15 minutes difference in the shortest time slept by the supposedly sleep-deprived and the longest time slept by the most rested.
They are all at around 7 hours. With the deadlines I have as a translator, I often work through the night and then grab 3 hours or so sleep before I have to start again. As a result, even when I do not have so much pressure, I rarely sleep more than 6 hours.
Fortunately, though, I only need to use an alarm clock on very rare occasions so I just let my body do what it wants. This means that when my body has had enough, I spend a night sleeping through solidly for 12 hours or even longer. It all seems to even out in the end.
