HENDERSON, Ky (WEHT) – Have you ever been kept up by someone snoring all night? A new study from MattressNextDay uses data to estimate the total number of snorers in each state.
The study uses Statista and Google Search data to analyze the number of people searching “snoring” and “how to stop snoring” to identify the states where individuals are struggling with snoring at night. The study also examined data to determine the percentage of the population to rank each of the states.
Mississippi was at the top of the list, with an estimated 16.8% of adults who snore, or roughly 492,328 people sleeping loudly each night. If you want to have a quieter night, you would have to travel to Alaska, where the study estimates only 10.9% of the population snores.
In the Tri-State, Kentucky was in ranked 6th in the entire nation, with an estimated 15.7% of the adult population snoring, which by the study’s estimates is around 709,330 adults, much higher than Mississippi’s snoring population. Indiana reportedly has 986,766 snoring adults, but these Hoosier snoozers only make up 14.4% of the population, putting it in 18th place. Illinois has an estimated 1,709,430 snoring adults at night, which is over half of the population of Chicago, but only 13.7% of the entire state, putting the Land of Lincoln in 29th place.
