Very limited knowledge exists regarding risk factors of insomnia among African-American older adults who live in economically disadvantaged areas. This study investigated measured insomnia, in addition to demographic factors, financial difficulty, number of chronic diseases, self-rated health, pain intensity, and depression among 398 African-American older adults in one of the most economically disadvantaged areas of Los Angeles. Financial difficulty, pain, chronic disease and depression were associated with higher odds of clinical insomnia. Insomnia does not occur in a vacuum and accompanies other social and health needs. African-American older adults who live in economically disadvantaged areas require comprehensive care packages that simultaneously address insomnia, financial needs, mental health, and physical health.
