It’s that time, Knoxville. It really is.
Time, of course, that we tell you Knoxville has landed atop yet another list.
(We do, after all, have a penchant for blogging about our fair city’s various rankings on a variety of lists. In the past, we’ve written about Knoxville’s placement as a romantic city; an unhappy city; a city of old folks; and a city of happy marriages — just to name a few, of course.)
The latest? Knoxville is listed as the No. 2 sleepless city. According to the website sleepbetter.org, Knoxville residents have a hard time getting a good night’s sleep, second only to Charleston, W.V.
The survey indicates Knoxvillians don’t get enough sleep an average of 10 days per month. And apparently 24.1% of residents don’t get enough sleep more than half the time.
The results, according to sleepbetter.org, were arrived at by analyzing “data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDCP) annual Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Survey (BRFSS) to rank the nation’s most sleep-deprived cities.”
The Tri-Cities area in northeast Tennessee/southwest Virginia ranked No. 6. Here are the rest of the top 10:
