- The purpose of this study was to report if there is a difference in obesity according to the gender and sleep quality of primary school students. The participants of this study were 2,607 primary school students in the 4th grade shown in the 2018 (Korean Children and Youth Panel Survey) data. The results of this study are as follows: First, obesity showed a difference according to gender, and there was no difference in terms of sleep quality according to obesity.
