GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - You snooze, you lose. Right?
Wrong, in the literal sense. Turns out you snooze, you win...and Minnesotans are winning.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a minimum of seven hours of sleep per night. In a recent survey, nearly 71 percent of Minnesotans said they get a least that, ranking third best in the nation behind South Dakota and Colorado.
The states reporting the most sleep are in the Midwest. People in the south and east coast sleep less.
The report also found whites and Hispanics reportedly sleep more than Asians, Blacks, Native Americans, and those deemed multi-racial.
Finally, the report revealed people who are employed sleep better, people who are married sleep better, and those with a college degree or higher sleep better.
