Many Americans are deprived of sleep - that doesn't entirely surprise us. However, what did interest us was just how sleep deprivation varies across the United States.
Apparently, things aren't looking too good for you if you live in the Eastern United States - particularly if you're a resident of West Virginia. Things look better for those on the West Coast - especially if you're from California.
Why do you think the level of sleep deprivation varies across America and why is there such a prominent East/West split? Before people put forward the lifestyle argument, we'd ask this - are people living in Los Angeles under any less pressure than those living in New York City?
