This chapter describes recent approaches to conceptualizing the ecology of disadvantage in relation to children's sleep. It treats sleep as an indicator and outcome of environmental adversity. It begins with a discussion of conceptual issues and stress models that frame interpretation of class and poverty effects. The next section briefly considers the strengths and weaknesses of low socioeconomic status (SES) as a representation of the ecology of disadvantage. The sections that follow discuss income poverty and representations of poverty-related stressors.

Keywords:   children's sleep, stress model, class, poverty, socioeconomic status
