According to a survey of Chicagoans, almost all of us snore.

The Snoring Center questioned more than 200 people in the Chicago area about their sleeping patterns and snoring issues.

It found 90 percent of those surveyed say they snore at some point, 20 percent snore almost every night.

Nearly 70 percent say there's at least one person in their household that's a snorer.

All that snoring takes its toll.

More than half of those surveyed say their spouse or partner is the main snoring culprit.

About one in three say they've slept apart to get away from a snoring partner and nearly 30 percent say snoring causes problems in their relationships.

Twenty percent of people describe their partner's snoring as sounding like a chainsaw. But about the same amount compared their partner's snoring to a kitten purring.

And, when asked which professional athlete they think snores the most, most guessed the Chicago Bears, specifically Brian Urlacher.
