Inspired by Nate Silver’s recent experiment of examining major U.S. cities’ work arrival times, Bing data scientists explored the search engine’s usage as a barometer for when people get online, start work or wake up. As you can see from the infographic above, New Yorkers are the latest to get up and at ‘em in the a.m.
And on the other side of the country, San Franciscans wake up the earliest.
When Bing examined the daily average across 25 cities, another interesting pattern emerged: people tend to wake up earlier as the week progresses.
