Analysts determined the rankings by looking at four groups of data: work stress, financial stress, family stress and health and safety stress. Among these four categories, analysts evaluated 30 metrics, including unemployment rate, poverty rate, strength of social ties and share of adult smokers.

Some cities on the list had a number stressful variables in common. Researchers found the highest poverty rates in Detroit, Michigan, Cleveland, Ohio, Brownsville, Texas, Rochester, New York, and San Bernardino, California. The highest divorce rates were in Cleveland, Ohio, Detroit, Michigan, Birmingham, Alabama, Rochester, New York, and Richmond, Virginia.
