According to a study conducted by Bert Sperling in partnership with Ambien, Minneapolis is the number one city in the United States for sleep quality and Chicago is ranked seventh.
This designation resulted from an analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the U.S. Census.
Among the cities assessed, Chicago, Illinois earned an impressive placement, coming in seventh on the list. This reflects positively on the sleep health of the city’s residents and overall quality of life.
Chicago, fondly known as the Windy City, is often bustling with activity due to its status as a cultural and economic hub. Despite its high-energy atmosphere, the study shows that its citizens manage to balance this vibrancy with restful sleep.
The study looked at a variety of factors, including the number of days that residents self-reported getting poor sleep, as well as their overall happiness index.
Using this data, Sperling and his team were able to confidently rank 50 cities in terms of sleep quality and came out with Minneapolis as the top city in the country in this category.
This placed Minneapolis ahead of other growing metropolises such as San Diego, California, Chicago, Illinois, and Austin, Texas.
While those cities also ranked in the top ten, it appears that residents of Minneapolis are getting quantifiably better rest than anywhere else in the United States.
This especially goes for citizens of Miami, Florida, New York, New York, and Las Vegas, Nevada, whose home cities landed in the bottom 10 for sleep quality. Detroit, Michigan was found to be the very worst city in America for sleep.
