The States Where People Get the Most (and Least) Sleep


New York may be the city that never sleeps, but at the state level, Hawaiians get the least amount of shut-eye. (South Dakotans sleep the most for those keeping track at home.) This data comes from a recent CDC report, which found one in three Americans isn’t getting the recommended seven hours of sleep per night. In Hawaii, it’s nearly one in two.

The data looks at the percentage of people in each state that clock seven hours of zzzs, so we don’t know how many hours of shut-eye Californians or Floridians get on average.
