The Least and Most Stressed States in 2018

0 Ratings

Is it the traffic? Is it the commute? Perhaps it's working long hours. And perhaps it's all of these combines, plus some more. The most common causes of stress include relationships, money, job pressure, sleep deprivation, and poor nutrition.

The following list is based on a recent report by the career web site Zippia. States are ranked most to least stressed.

Other criteria taken into consideration include unemployment, population density, home price to income ration and percent of uninsured people. The higher any of these was, the more stressful the people of the state are. The data is from the U.S. Census' American Community Survey for 2012-2016.
