In order to measure stress, we selected a set of six criteria that reflect its root causes for most people and used them to look at the 59 places in Arizona with a population over 5,000 according to the 2010-2014 American Community Survey:
- Percentage of population with a long commute (over 30 minutes)
- Unemployment Rate
- Hours worked
- Population density
- Percentage of income spent on rent
- Percentage of population without health insurance
The higher any of these were, the more stressed the people of the place are.
Our data is from the U.S. Census’ American Community Survey for 2010-2014.
We ranked each place from 1 to 59 (with one being the most stressed side of the scale) in the six individual criteria. These ranks were then averaged into a Stress Score, the lowest of which was the most stressed out place in the Grand Canyon State.
Below, we’ll take a look at the standout stress stats for each top 10 most stressed places, and wrap the whole thing up with a detailed ranking of all 59 places we analyzed.
