What Sleeping Position Do COVID-19 Citizen Scientists Prefer?

Do you like to sleep on your back, side, or belly?

We asked our Citizen Scientists what sleeping position they found most comfortable. 

11,874 participants reported back.

69% of our respondents prefer sleeping on their side, which is known as “lateral sleeping.” The next most popular sleeping position was “on my back,” reported by 14% of our Citizen Scientists. 

Over 1,500 participants reported sleeping on their stomachs or in the “prone” position, which represented 13% of those surveyed. Only 3% of our nearly twelve thousand participants surveyed had no sleeping position preference.
