Wellness-focused tech brand Mintal released a sleep habits report that includes insights stemming from its artificial intelligence (AI)-driven Mintal Tracker app to highlight interesting facts about the sleep patterns of men and women in the United States, revealing several notable commonalities and differences.

Key findings include:

  • Contrary to the popular belief that men snore more than women, Mintal’s app revealed the opposite—out of all users who snore, 52.7% were women and 47.3% were men.
  • 38% of Mintal Tracker users sleep talk, with the breakdown equating to 54.3% women and 45.7% men.
  • When it comes to average time asleep, both men and women log almost seven hours of sleep each night on average, with women getting slightly more shut eye at 6 hours 53 minutes, and men receiving 6 hours 47 minutes.

“While we know that quality sleep is essential, many people fail to make it a priority—so we want to change that,” says Frank Jiang, founder and CEO of Mintal, in a release. “Our apps help people take a scientific approach to healthier sleep, providing our users with the tools they need to feel fully rested.”

The data in the report covers the sleep habits of Mintal Tracker’s iOS and Android users between August 2020 and July 2021 in the United States. The Mintal Tracker app enables users to gain a deeper understanding of their sleep patterns and habits, as well as leverages AI to alert users about their propensity to snore, sleep talk, and more.
