BOSTON (WHDH) – Boston is the city that never sleeps, not New York City, turns out, according to a new study.
Researchers at Harmony Healthcare IT recently analyzed Google Trends and identified the most popular sleep-related questions weary Americans search for online to better understand the biggest sleep issues coast to coast.
The cities with the greatest sleep deprivation in the country were Boston, Las Vegas, Baltimore, Denver and Seattle, researchers said. The cities with the lowest levels of sleep deprivation were Chicago, New York City, Phoenix, Los Angeles and San Antonio.
The researchers also spoke to 1,100 people and learned that nine out of 10 of them have trouble falling asleep, with more than 50 percent admitting they have trouble sleeping at least once a week, if not more often.
According to the study, people in the Bay State also searched “how to fall asleep” the most often when Googling about sleep problems.
