Las Vegas (KSNV) — A study has ranked the Silver State as one of the most stressed-out places in the United States.
The study, conducted by WalletHub, compared all 50 states and named the top ten most and less stressful states, calling Nevada one of the top five, along with Mississippi, Louisiana, New Mexico, and West Virginia.
Experts looked at 41 metrics, ranging from average hours worked per week to the personal bankruptcy rate to the share of adults getting adequate sleep.
According to WalletHub, 83% of adults are stressed out by high inflation, already adding to other sources of stress like the lingering effects of COVID-19 and relationship tensions.
Nevada found itself having the second-highest divorce rate while also having the third-fewest psychologists per capita, which the report says contributes to the overall ranking.
Rounding out the top ten most stressful states are Arkansas, Alabama, Kentucky, Texas, and Oklahoma.
Some of the least stressed-out states include New Jersey, North Dakota, Massachusetts, Utah, and Minnesota.
