Capital Residents Need More Sleep

Folks in Wisconsin’s Capital City can use some rest. According to Sleep Better-Dot-Org, Madison residents have the fifth-highest sleep shortage among the nation’s top 100 metro areas. Madisonians admit they don’t get enough sleep for an average of almost nine-and-a-half days every month. And about a quarter of the residents say they don’t get enough sleep for more than half the time. The data comes from the U-S Centers for Disease Control’s annual survey for behavioral risk factors. Milwaukeeans get a lot of shuteye, by comparison. They’re ranked the 73rd-neediest for more sleep. And the Green Bay-Appleton area was ranked 100th. Charleston West Virginia was rated the most sleepless city in America.
