“Sleep in the City
Best and Worst Cities for Sleep
As our lifestyle becomes increasingly stressful due to work, relationships, and world events, the need for sleep becomes ever more important. According to a poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation (Sleep in America), nearly seven out of 10 Americans said they experience frequent sleep problems. Sleep loss has been linked to health problems such as obesity and high blood pressure, negative mood and behavior, decreased productivity, and safety issues in the home, on the job, and on the road. For these reasons, we are updating our original 2004 Sleep in the City analysis.

As in the 2004 analysis, the 50 most populous metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) were included in the analysis, as defined by the United State Census Bureau. For consistency with the previous analysis, we used the same 50 metro areas.

The analysis was based on four criteria:

# of days in the last month that respondents did not get enough rest or sleep
Average length of daily commute
Divorce rate
Unemployment rate “
