Sleep report outlines where you rank among snorers, and Phoenix gets the worm

By Anne Stych  | Phoenix Business Journal

Women are half as likely as men to be heavy snorers, but a new study confirms that there’s a significant correlation between body mass index and snoring for both sexes. 

On average, Americans enter snore mode around 2.65 times a night for a total duration of 22 minutes, according to data compiled by well-being electronics manufacturer Withings.

For women, the average is 2.29 times a night with a duration of 17 minutes and 47 seconds, while men average 2.75 times a night for 24 mins and 7 seconds. 

But the higher their BMI, the more likely a person is to be a heavy snorer, researchers found. The study showed that reducing BMI by five points decreased the risk of being a heavier snorer by a factor of three. 

Researchers also found that Americans wake up an average of twice a night and spend about 31 minutes awake before getting back to sleep, clocking an average of three hours and 17 minutes of deep REM sleep each night.
