If you live in Detroit, Cleveland or Newark, odds are good the stress level in your world is pretty high. Conversely, if you reside in Fremont, California or Bismarck, North Dakota, life is likely a much smoother ride. Those conclusions are according to research by the personal finance website WalletHub, which compared 182 US cities across a number of criteria, including work stress, financial stress, family stress and health/safety stress. Detroit finished among the top three cities in three of the four categories, earning it the overall top – or bottom if you prefer – ranking as the most stressed out city in America. Which I’m guessing is not what Motown would prefer to be known for.
