Where you live can have a big impact on your stress-level, according to a new study published by the job-finder site Zippia. So, what are the 10 most stressed-out cities in America?

Researchers looked at average commutes, unemployment, work hours and other factors in every U.S. city with at least 100,000 people… all 306 of them. And according to the results, the most stressed-out city in America is right here in the state of Florida. Could Tampa hold this dubious distinction?

I will tell you this… 3 of the top 10 cities are all located in and around Los Angeles, CA. Stay away from California! For the most part, they’re nuts out there. I spent over 20 years living in and around L.A. and I can tell you that the majority of those people living out there are mean and angry. Not sure why. Do they hate their jobs? Do they hate their husband or wife? Do they hate commuting so far?

I’ll bet it’s the massive taxes that they pay funding every social program under the sun. While they slave away for 40+ hours per week, only to have their own household break even in the end (if they’re lucky).

Here is a list of the Top 10 Most Stressed-Out Cities.

  1. Miami
  2. Jersey City
  3. Newark
  4. East Los Angeles
  5. Inglewood (just outside of L.A.)
  6. New York
  7. Elizabeth, NJ
  8. Chicago
  9. L.A.
  10. Fort Lauderdale

Thankfully, no Tampa Bay area cities rank in the top 10. But we could have predicted that… right?
