Due to a combination of work- and money-related stressors, Macon was listed as the No. 16 most stressed city in the U.S., according to a ranking done by 24/7 Wall St.
The ranking said that while American’s stress levels are trending downward, according to the American Psychological Association, improvements, like wage gap and other forms of discrimination, have been uneven.
Average weekly time spent working, crime rate, poverty rate, unemployment rate and the percent of adults in poor health were all listed as part of the ranking.
24/7 Wall St. listed the top 25 stressed out cities in the ranking, and of those, Georgia was home to five.
