Which Cities Get The Most Sleep? (Chart)

New York is affectionately known as the city that never sleeps, but is there some truth behind that nickname? At least one set of data suggests there isn’t.

Jawbone compiled data from thousands of people wearing a Jawbone Up activity tracker and broke it down by city. The tracker records all of your physical activities throughout a day, from sleeping to working to exercising, etc.

When they analyzed the sleeping data, they found some interesting results. New Yorkers aren’t quite the red-eyed workaholics they’re chalked up to be. On the contrary, the average New York Jawbone user gets roughly 6 hours and 47 minutes per night.

Which city sleeps the least? Shocker: it’s Las Vegas. Sin City partiers tally an average of 6 hours and 32 minutes of sleep nightly. On the opposite side of the spectrum there's Orlando, where residents notch 6 hours and 56 minutes of shut eye every night.
