Believe It or Not: Philly Not a “Most-Stressed” City

Though it does rank 13th in CNNMoney list.

The good news: Philadelphia is not in the Top 10 of CNNMoney’s new list of the nation’s most-stressed cities.

The not-as-good news: We still rank 13th.


CBS Philly reports:

Data for 55 cities with populations of one-million or more was collected to come up with 15 of the biggest indicators of stress — including things like unemployment, divorces and commute times.

The City of Brotherly Love came in the 13th slot with the zen factor being fewer divorces and a stress factor of heavy traffic.

New York was the most-stressed city; Salt Lake City was the least.
