Do you get more or less sleep than your fellow Americans?

How much sleep do you get every night? I need eight hours to feel good, and bedtime can be no later than 11 p.m. or midnight, or I’m still thrown off the following day! *So boring, me.*

Researchers at Sleep Cycle, took a snapshot of our country’s sleep quality on one day and found: overall, people in the United States got an average of 7.09 hours of sleep; they went to bed by 11:27 p.m., and woke up at 6:45am.

When broken down by individual state, though, there are some locations that slept better or worse than others:

Hawaii got the least amount of sleep (6.40 hours)
Montana got the most sleep (7.26 hours)
Folks in Vermont got the best quality sleep
Hawaii slept the worst
The state of Wyoming woke up in the worst mood
Louisiana woke up in the best mood

This information is based on 96,102 male and female Sleep Cycle alarm clock users, ages 18-74 years old, who voluntarily and anonymously shared their sleep data from October 31.

  • Hi Diane,
    I get about 6-7 hours of sleep 7 days a week.

    • Is that enough? I like 8 hours. I envy those who need less!

      • It works for me. If I sleep more, I feel lazy throughout the day.
