It Just Keeps Gettin' Tougher Every Day
Maybe there's a lot of pressure in being a central part of a Steve Miller classic. How else can we explain the fact that Tacoma, Wash., tops the list of the nation's Most-Stressed Cities? The absence, though, of Phoenix, Philadelphia, Atlanta, or L.A. from the top of this list shoots that theory to hell.
Stress was determined, incidentally, by comparing 331 cities' unemployment rate, divorce rate, commute time, violent crime, property crime, suicide rate, alcohol consumption, self-reported "poor mental health" and cloudy days. Looking to loosen your load and take it easy? While you might think Winslow, Arizona, would be the natural choice for most relaxed, actually Albany-Schenectady-Troy in New York and Harrisburg-Lebanon-Carlisle in Pennsylvania tied for being the least stressed. >
