Zippia conducted a study to see what states in the U.S. are under the most stress. They chose 6 categories to judge by:

  • Long commute times
  • Unemployment
  • Hours worked
  • Population density
  • Home price to income ratio
  • Percent of uninsured population

Zippia then went through the results of the 2018 U.S. Census and arranged the results into a list ranking stress from 1-50.

10 Most Stressed States

  1. Florida
  2. New Jersey
  3. Texas
  4. California
  5. Maryland
  6. Georgia
  7. Delaware
  8. Virginia
  9. Illinois
  10. Mississippi

10 Least Stressed States

  1. Iowa
  2. North Dakota
  3. Minnesota
  4. Utah
  5. Montana
  6. Vermont
  7. Wisconsin
  8. South Dakota
  9. Nebraska
  10. Maine
