Oregonians Are Some Of The Best Sleepers In The Country

<p>About 23 percent of Oregonians reported an insufficient night's sleep over 30 days.</p>

About 23 percent of Oregonians reported an insufficient night's sleep over 30 days.

Sleep is no struggle out here in the Beaver State, with most Oregonians saying that they get their eight hours of shut eye nightly.

Vox compiled the information from a 2008 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that asked people how many nights they felt they had insufficient sleep in the past 30 days.

The eastern United States reported the most restless nights; West Virginia and Kentucky residents say they slept well only 16 of 30 days.

Sleeplessness doesn't seem to be a problem in the West, however. We're getting the best sleep in the nation right here in Oregon, with about 77 percent of residents reporting a good night's sleep regularly.

Californians were up there too at No. 5, Idahoans came in at No. 15 and Washingtonians ranked No. 27.
