Where Does Michigan Rank in List of Most-Stressed States?

Turns out, Michiganders aren’t as stressed out as one might think. Michigan ranks at #22 on Movoto’s list of the most-stressed states.

The most-stressed state in the US? Florida. (Really??!?)

The website used six factors that cause adults the most stress.

  • 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

You’d think the sunshine and easy-going lifestyle would be relaxing for Floridians. But it’s the state’s high unemployment and lack of health insurance that send its residence over the edge.

Here’s the top 10:

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

The site used US Census data from 2008-2012, which ranked Michigan 1st in unemployment, and 33rd in the nation for individuals without health insurance.
