How Much do Americans Sleep?



The CDC recently published a study detailing how much Americans sleep. The article states that:

“Among 444,306 respondents, 11.8% reported a sleep duration
≤5 hours, 23.0% reported 6 hours, 29.5% reported 7 hours, 27.7%
reported 8 hours, 4.4% reported 9 hours, and 3.6% reported
≥10 hours. Overall, 65.2% reported the recommended healthy
sleep duration.”

Below, I have created visualization detailing how much the average American sleeps using this information. I also used one of the studies tables to show what percentage of people are getting more than 7 hours of sleep a night in each state.

The CDC is the source of the data for this study. The study can be found here.

Google Sheets and Tableau were used to create this visualization.
