A report by Movoto ranked states by the amount of stress they have.

The overall rank was  based on the following metrics: percentage of population with a long commute (over 20 minutes), unemployment, hours worked, population density, percentage of income spent on housing, percentage of population without health insurance.

Click on a state to see overall rankings for each state. States in red had more stress than states in blue. The darker the color, the more stress that state is reported to have. Lower rankings have more stress than higher rankings.  

*Hawaii and Alaska were not factored into the rankings, but according to Movoto, their overall placement would be somewhere in the middle.
