Abstract: This study aimed to analyze the association between the duration of the nap and the variables gender, age, education, family income, frailty levels and frailty criteria of community-dwelling elderly. This was a descriptive and cross-sectional study, an excerpt from the multicenter project Frailty in Elderly Brazilians. A total of 3,075 older adults were evaluated, aged 65 and over, using a sociodemographic questionnaire, question about nap (Minnesota Leisure Activity Questionnaire), phenotype of frailty proposed by Fried and screening test for cognitive impairment (Mini Mental State Examination). Descriptive analysis, Mann-Whitney and Kruskal-Wallis tests (p<0.05) and multiple linear regression were applied. Ethical principles were respected. Most of the elderly participants napped (61.7%), with an average of 53.4±42.7 min/day. There was an association between duration of naps and variables gender (p=0.002), frailty (p=0.022) and frailty criterion "hand grip strength" (p=0.008). It was observed that the length of the naps is greater for male and frail elderly.
