Best and Worst U.S. Cities for Sleep

From Tuck Foundation, December 4, 2017

A variety of factors impact how well we sleep, from our personal health and happiness to environmental factors like air and noise pollution. Each person is different. For example, a person with allergies will sleep better in a cleaner city, but pollution might not be such a big deal to a person without allergies.

We ranked the top 150 cities in the U.S. to find the best and worst cities for sleep. You can look at the data below to see how your city stacks up.

(Honolulu ranks 2nd-worst for sleep deprivation with 48% not getting 8 hours.  We are tied with Newark NJ.  Only Detroit, MI is worse.)

The average adult requires 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night. Unfortunately, much of America doesn’t achieve that, due to poor health, increased work and family obligations, and emotional factors like anxiety and depression. Worse, sleep deprivation has real negative effects on your health, ranging from reduced cognitive processing and poorer memory to irritability and increased risk of weight gain and depression.

Using 2014 survey data, the CDC found that more than a third of Americans don’t get sufficient sleep on a regular basis (35.2 percent). Perhaps surprisingly, as a state Hawaii reported the lowest levels of adequate sleep at 56 percent, while South Dakota got the most sleep at 72 percent. Individuals living in the southeastern part of the U.S. and Appalachia reported the lowest amounts of sleep, which may be associated with the higher rates of obesity and poor health in those regions.

The map below reveals the percentage of adults reporting less than 7 hours of sleep by county.

For our rankings, we used the 2014 numbers from the CDC for the age-adjusted prevalence of adults sleeping less than 7 hours by city.
