GEORGIA RANKS 2nd AS MOST STRESSFUL STATE IN WHICH TO LIVE

GEORGIA RANKS 2nd AS MOST STRESSFUL STATE IN WHICH TO LIVE

In a recent 2014 study by Chris Kolmar, Chief Armchair Economist of MOVOTO
ranks Florida as #1 Most Stressed State in which to live with Georgia right behind as #2.

Do we Atlantan’s really need to be told this?

But which states take being stressed out to the next level?

Florida have earned the dubious distinction of being the most stressed out in the country.
Georgia comes in 2nd. Maybe if we have more traffic and work harder we can make it to #1 next year!

The 10 Most Stressed Out US States:

1. Florida
2. Georgia
3. New Jersey
4. California
5. Nevada
6. Illinois
7. New York
8. Maryland
9. North Carolina
10. Arizona


How MOVOTO Measured Stress (Without Stressing Out)
In order to measure stress, they selected a set of six criteria that reflect its root causes for most people and used them to look at the lower 48 states:

  • Percentage of population with a long commute (over 20 minutes)
  • Unemployment
  • Hours worked
  • Population density
  • Percentage of income spent on housing
  • Percentage of population without health insurance
  • The higher any of these was, the more stressful the people of the state are.

They used data from the U.S. Census’ American Community Survey for 2008-2012.

They ranked each state from 1 to 48 (with one being the most stressed side of the scale) in the six individual criteria. These ranks were then averaged into one Big Deal Score, the lowest of which was the most stressed out state in America. See Chart Below.

Georgians work the most hours on average of any state’s residents in our top 10 according to MOVOTO.

Could it be less people doing jobs that previously had more people doing them, so longer hours worked per worker?

Do we stress over  losing a job since the unemployment rate for Georgia is in the top 20 percent of the 48 states?

Certainly with Atlanta ranked as #2 of the Most Discourteous Drivers earlier this year our driving time / Marta commuters time, adds a lot of stress for everyone in Georgia.

The average travel time to work in the United States is 25.4 minutes, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Check out the interesting map that was developed to check commute time by zip code.
Zoom In, move around the map or enter your town or zip code to find commute times for your area.
