SAN FRANCISCO — A principal data scientist out of California took a look at how people around the world rang in the new year.
Brian Wilt looked at how late people stayed up around the world on New Year’s Eve last year.
Wilt works at Jawbone, a company that produces UP, a wristband that tracks sleep, among other things. He used data from more than 100,000 users to create an interactive map of how late people stay up on New Year’s Eve.
The results show only one U.S. city made the top ten — Astoria (Queens), N.Y.
Wilt found that almost 30 percent of Americans were asleep by midnight on New Year’s Eve.
People living in cities in Europe and South America tended to stay up the latest.
In fact, two cities in Russia partied the hardest last year, staying up until nearly 4 a.m.
Wilt’s full report can be found on Jawbone.
