Cities that Need Sleep

Sure, caffeine will keep you up at night, but it doesn't compare to the stare-at-the-ceiling power of stress. In a recent study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers discovered that untamed tension increases the odds of insomnia by 43 percent.

Maybe that explains why Fresno, not New York, is the city that never sleeps: It has a 12.7 percent unemployment rate. By comparison, the most-rested address, Honolulu, has a jobless rate of just 5.9 percent.

We know this because we stayed up late sifting through stats. These included Simmons market research on the percentage of people in each city who average 7 or fewer hours of sleep a night, the number who've suffered from insomnia, and the percentage who report popping sleeping pills; and, from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the number of sleep-disorders centers per capita.

We learned that while not that many people are sleepless in Seattle, an awful lot are tired in Texas. Here, cities that need sleep, and where people sleep good.
