The U.S. Department of Energy recommends a fairly significant amount of insulation (R-49) in residential attics. This amount far exceeds most building codes and specs, which means that many homes do not have enough insulation. It has been estimated that 65% of homes in the U.S. are under-insulated, and most homes over 10 years old have about 1/3 of the recommended amount of insulation.
