The Centers for Disease Control reports the best rested Americans live on island territories and the state of Hawaii.
A nationwide survey of 403,981 people asked, "During the last 30 days, for about how many days have you felt you did not get enough rest or sleep?"
Folks from West Virginia said they were sleep-deprived 19 days, the highest number in the survey. Virgin Islanders were well down the list at 9.6 days. In fact, the Virgin Islands was fourth-best for slumber, while Utah and Kentucky were at the bottom of the list (worst).
