I think its safe to say that we all have a bit of stress in our life. But what cities in the country stress the most?

Well, according to Wallet Hub, the city that seems to stress the most is Newark, New Jersey. Those conducting the study took various variables into consideration while compiling this list.

Some of the things researchers took into account were the amount of hours worked by individuals in cities, the amount of debt that they are in and the divorce rates in cities.

Shockingly, a city in NORTH LOUISIANA made the list---Shreveport! Yes, folks in Shreveport are stressing!!!

I am surprised that Lafayette, Baton Rouge, or New Orleans didn't make the list. Between traffic, the state of the economy and the crime rate, I thought that a few of the previously mentioned cities would have made the Top-10.

New Orleans is up there, but not as a high a Shreveport. You can see the whole list HERE.

Here are the Top-10 cities stressing:

  1. Newark, New Jersey
  2. Detroit
  3. Cleveland
  4. Jackson, Mississippi
  5. Miami
  6. Birmingham, Alabama
  7. San Bernardino, California
  8. Rochester, New York
  9. Augusta, Georgia
  10. Shreveport, Louisiana
