“Dubai has the most leisurely sleep schedule, with 10% of users still asleep by 11am,” the report stated.

Residents of Melbourne, Australia were titled as people who get the most sleep, with an average of six hours and 58 minutes.

Their counterparts in Brisbane were also found to be early risers, with a majority getting up at 6:29 am every morning.

“The movement and sleep patterns of a city tell an amazing story about its culture and people,” the report said.
