Well, fellow Californians, we've all (secretly) known it to be true... But a newly released data study can now confirm that the state of California is one of the most stressed out states in the country.
I mean... Just spend five minutes driving in downtown Los Angeles if you need any convincing of that.
According to the career services site Zippia, California officially ranks fourth out of the '10 most stressed out states in America'. To conduct the survey, Zippia used data from 2012 to 2016, from the U.S. Census American Community Survey.
Here's how the '10 Most Stressed Out States In America' ranked:
- New Jersey
- New York
- North Carolina
The rankings were all based on commute times, unemployment rates, average hours worked, population density, home price to income ratio, and even the percent of the population living uninsured.
