These Are The U.S. Cities Getting The Least Sleep

 

These Are The U.S. Cities Getting The Least Sleep

An adult requires 7 to 8 hours sleep every night on average but in the United States, many people are missing out on that… especially tonight, but which city's worse?

As Statista's Niall McCarthy notes, in 2014 the CDC found that more than a third of people aren't getting enough sleep. The Tuck Sleep Foundation recently carried out a further analysis of the factors that influence our sleep, such as sleep deprivation, commuting time, air quality, light pollution, construction as well as obesity and unemployment rates. The result was a ranking of the 150 U.S. cities with the best and worst quality of sleep.

The best sleep levels were recorded in Colorado Springs, Sioux Falls and Boise while the worst places were Detroit, Newark and Birmingham, Alabama.

The infographic above takes into account sleep patterns in selected major cities.

Detroit has the worst quality of sleep of any U.S. city with 50.8 percent of its residents not getting a proper night's rest. Some of the reasons behind the trouble nodding off there include heavy construction which in turn results in traffic jams and noise pollution.

In Philadelphia, 44.3 percent of people aren't getting enough sleep either, mainly due to high pollution and obesity levels as well as a higher than average unemployment rate. New York is known as "the city that never sleeps" and that title is certainly warranted. Due to high pollution levels, constant noise and long commutes, 41 percent of New Yorkers miss out on a full night of sleep.
