If you’re one of the people that invested in an activity/calorie tracker, then you’ve landed yourself in a statistic.

The punched in and calibrated information you get on your wearable device is collected in a database that shows the overall sleeping and activity patterns of a city’s populace.

Jawbone, the makers of UP, a digitized wristband that tracks how its users move and sleep, has released a data set based on hundreds of thousands of users, from Tokyo, to Dubai and New York.

Although the results are based strictly on UP users, their movement and sleep patterns can still tell an amazing story about the city’s culture and people.
