Where New York Ranks Among Most Stressed-Out States
Are you worried about your job? Upset about the condition of your home? Anxious about overpopulation? Buried in too much snow?
Zippia, a job and career site, has published the results of its study about stress and anxiety on a state-by-state basis. The rankings are based on six factors that cause major stress: Commute times, unemployment, hours worked per week, population density, home price to income ratio, and the percent of the population that's uninsured. Here, according to this study, are the 10 most stressed-out states:
- New Jersey
Florida is #1? Shocker. New York just missed the top 10, coming in at #11 for stress and anxiety. We're thinking a lot of that stress in the Empire State (especially when it comes to commuting, density, and other factors) is experienced downstate.
The least stressed state in this study: Iowa.
