Question: In order to make the reference periods as concrete as possible and to standardize them across questions 14 to 16, we recommend asking for the "last four weeks" [„letzten vier Wochen“]in the question.
Since this is a question with multiple answers, we recommend that this is already made clear in the question:
"If you think about the last four weeks, which of these descriptions apply to you with regard to your sleep?"
[„Wenn Sie an die letzten vier Wochen denken, welche dieser Beschreibungen treffen auf Ihr Schlafverhalten zu?“]
Response Options: We recommend specifying the answer option "I hear noises" ("I hear nois-es, such as ..." [„Ich höre Geräusche, wie z. B. ...“]) and either adding "too" to the answer option "I feel cold" ("I feel too cold" [“Mir ist oft zu kalt”]) or removing "too" from the answer option "I feel too warm" [“Mir ist oft zu warm”] to make the two answer options match.
