The Social Survey conducted by the Central Bureau of Statistics among persons aged 20 and over in 2017 examined, among other things, the sleep habits of the participants. The survey results show that overall, Jerusalem residents sleep well. Some 28% of Jerusalem residents responded that they slept for eight hours or more each night, compared with 25% in Israel, 24% in Haifa and Rishon Lezion, 19% in Petah Tikva and only 17% in Tel Aviv.
On the other side of the sleeping scale, only 10% of the residents of Jerusalem testified that they slept every night for only five hours or less. This compares to 17% in Israel. Among the large cities, 21% of the residents of Haifa responded that they sleep five hours or less each night, 17% of the residents of Tel Aviv, and 16% of the residents of Rishon Lezion and Petah Tikva.
