Louisiana Named Most Stressed State
We're #1, we're #1, we're #1...
Wait, we don't want to be top dawg on this particular list!
The folks at WalletHub just released the results of a study where they ranked every state from the most stressed to the least and our great state came out on top, but the on the wrong end.
Louisiana was named the most stressed state in these United States of America. How can that possibly be? We work hard but play harder!
At any rate, there were 38 different factors that went into the rankings. Things like: unemployment rates, debt, divorce rates, childcare costs, depression rates and crime rates.
Ok, when they put it like that, I guess I get it. But we're still great people!
At the other end of the spectrum, the least stressed states include Minnesota, North Dakota, and Utah. Of course, they don't have Mardi Gras, so there's that.
