A new survey from U.S. News & World Report’s 360 Reviews finds that nearly half of U.S. adults (43%) have experienced some level of insomnia in 2023, and one in five U.S. adults (21%) say they rarely or never wake up feeling well-rested.

For the second year in a row, U.S. News surveyed U.S. adults about their sleep routines and habits, along with their sleep product preferences and more. Survey responses were weighted to be representative of the U.S. population.

“Americans have some pretty poor sleep habits,” said Haniya Rae, sleep feature editor for 360 Reviews in a news release. “Surveyed Americans said their worst sleep habits are going to bed at different times or looking at their screens while winding down.”

“Surveyed Americans deemed high-quality mattresses, memory foam pillows, and high-thread-count sheets to be the most worthwhile sleep products,” Rae said. “Look for these products on discount during National Sleep Comfort Month and Black Friday, both in November.”

Additional Sleep Survey Highlights

  • Americans prefer cotton sheets in warmer months and flannel sheets in colder weather months.
  • 39% have tried listening to white noise to help them rest.
  • 33% prefer sleeping in a separate bed from their partner at night, what’s been dubbed in pop culture as of late as “sleep divorce.
