Maybe we aren't sleepier as we age

The American Time Use Survey is composed from interviews asking people about their daily activities. In 2012, women ages 65 years and older reported an average of 8.8 hours/day sleeping and men reported an average of 8.7 hours. For those ages 15-19 years, women averaged 9.7 hours/day and men averaged 9.5 hours/day sleeping (Bureau of Labor Statistics).
